Geek Steal: iRobot Roomba Only 99 Bucks on Buy.com

The sexy robot-vacuuming action of the Roomba falls squarely in the “want, not need” category for most of us budget-conscious geeks, but prices are dropping to a point where I’m running out of excuses not to get one.

iRobot Roomba 400 Vacuum Cleaning Robot


Just saw the lowest price, yet. Buy.com has the last-generation iRobot Roomba 400 Vacuum Cleaning Robot on sale for $98.99, which is almost twenty bucks cheaper than the price on Amazon. Woot!

It automatically adjusts to different floor surfaces, goes where other vacuums can’t, has a 2.5 charge, and has smart sensor bumpers. And–unlike your Hoover–serves as perfectly acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation.

    I can attest to the glory of the Roomba. I was cynical when my hubby first bought it, but since then, well, it’s rocked my world.

    The Roomba is the closest incarnation of what I envisioned for the promise of the 2000’s (though a little squatter than the robot servants I was picturing). Still waiting for the flying cars and cybersex though.

    Totally. The next Roomba should double as a hover-board.
