iRobot Roomba 530

Price: $300

Since mother isn't around to clean up after you, someone, or something, has to tackle the responsibility of keeping your room devoid of dust and dirt. That's where the iRobot comes in. Simply press the clean button and watch the compact vacuum suck up 98 percent of dirt, dust, and debris found under or around your furniture and wall edges. Carpet, tile, and hardwood or linoleum floors—the Roomba 530 uses dirt detection technology and a cleaning-head suspension system to automatically adjust and clean all surfaces. Once complete, recharge the cleaning robot by placing it onto its docking station. Hey, last thing you need is the pad looking like Joe's Apartment after inviting some chicks over for a study session.
