    SO VERY cool - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qo-ZXw2k-4&list=UUofLIkht-Y37LByIKGHMVGQ


    I used to fix high end vacuums as a side hobby, and own a Dyson DC 33. I must say, my Dyson is one of the best vacuums I have ever owned. Their customer support is also outstanding (just got done dealing with their CS, above and beyond what I expected). Miele, SEBO, Riccar/Simplicity, and Electrolux are other, outstanding options as well. All these, including Dyson, are really the ONLY options you would want to consider when buying a serious vacuum.

    Haha, cool - HOWEVER -

    Hoover hasn't been Hoover for years; they've been sold and are now owned by a totally different company, and these days, are nothing that great, at all. They're merely a shell of what they once were. I would advise against Hoover.

    ^^^^Consumer Reports disagrees with you! I'm not currently in the market for a vacuum, but if I were, Hoover would still be my choice.

    My mother used an Electrolux over 70 years ago, all metal. She bought it from a door to door salesman. Sort of gives you a clue as to how old I am.

    BTW, I'm still using a Hoover Constellation, circa 1950s, for my car.

    Consumer Reports is NOTHING TO GO BY! They are really misleading and don't take into account things like warranty, build quality, and all the facts.

    In short, you would be doing yourself a disservice by listening to them, and buying yourself a new "Hoover". And if you don't believe me about Hoover being bought out, then do your research.

    There's nothing I stated that wasn't fact.


    About the Electrolux - Yes, those are the machines that were made by what is now called "Aerus" - they're not the REAL Electrolux; they were actually a company that bought the rights to use the Electrolux name here in the U.S back in the day, and Electrolux AB (of Europe) were the REAL, OG company. Then, Electrolux decided to bring their arguably far superior machines here to the U.S (Made in Hungary and Europe, outstanding warranty, good to great build quality (overall great), and the quietest machines in existence) and took the rights back for themselves. Many of Electrolux-now-Aerus and Electrolux AB's machines shared very similar design elements and attachments, but ultimately, don't waste your money on an Aerus - WAY overpriced, WAY too loud, not that great. Just get a Miele, Dyson, SEBO, or Electrolux with the sideways car steering wheel symbol.

    About the Constellation -

    Haha, yes! The old hover craft of vacuums. Totally impractical, but those old school Hoovers are something of a collectors item. Don't get rid of it, if anything, get it restored!

    I bought an Electrolux that was over twenty years old in 1975. I"m still using it for the autos, wall heaters and behind the appliances. You can put the hose on the other end for blowing out dust.

    Never said I didn't believe you, I just said if I were buying a vacuum today, it would be a Hoover. A lady friend of mine just bought a Shark, and says it's Great.

    Agree, good friend of mine received a Dyson for a wedding gift from someone, she said it's an awful vacuum when compared to her built-in Sears central vac, now that really says something.

    That's why Hoover isn't doing well financially. People still using 65 year old vacuums isn't good for business.
    I had a modern Hoover that died about 8 years ago. Replaced it with a Dyson Animal. Still works like new.

    Yeah, except it isn't, and doesn't. Was it plugged in? Lol.


    All that says is she doesn't know what a good vacuum is, sorry. It's not as if Dyson gets acclaim for nothing. Sorry but I imagine it was user error of some sort. Not trying to diss your friend, however.


    But whatever, idea of this thread was the use of Macs by Dyson, which is just awesome.

    I have a much better cleaner, very efficient, very low power and easy to use.

    Broom and mop.

    Cool to see Dyson using Mac.
    Funny to see the debate over who sucks best.
    Gentlemen, start your vacuums.

    I don't buy my vacuums based on what the company uses for computers. So dyson uses MPs for their product designs. I'm sure apple is very happy. Me, I'd rather find a product that fits my needs and does the job at a decent price. Dyson's are over priced imo.

    The Mac isn't doing the design anyway. The engineer and cad software deserves all the credit ;)

    Two Dysons and a Henry in this house, and knowing many of Dyson's products and their innovative design with airflow in particular the 6,1 does feel like a Macintosh crossed with Dyson.

    My hand held Dyson is invaluable for my work when I have to clean gunk out of computers, every other handheld is simply not up to the job!

    Reading the header I thought that OP meant that Dyson uses its own products to (testdrive) clean their NEW :apple: Mac Pro! Than it would have been a very original on-topic thread! :D

    I own 4 dysons. Three are the first generation handhelds that sold for $299 -399 a couple of years ago. One is a regular upright.

    I wouldn't go handing them the title as best vacuum or engineering. They are nice and convenient though. Biggest complaint would be they don't have an on button. You have to constantly push the switch forward into on. And second the parts aren't interchangeable between the two handhelds.

    I own one of the newer shark handhelds that plug-in and really like it for the money.

    Dysons cost what they cost for the same reasons Macs cost what they cost - build quality, innovative design and engineering, customer service, and patents. Just like Apple, Dyson is a TRUE innovator in the field, the real deal, and they patent all that.

    Having owned a Dyson (more than one), you definitely get what you pay for. I'd rather buy something that lasts and does the job right.

    BTW, if you think Dysons are too expensive, check out Miele, or SEBO - some of which cost $1,500.

    Wasn't suggesting that users here buy Dysons because they use Macs. I would buy a Dyson regardless of what computers they use. It's just awesome that they use Macs, and thus the relevance here.

    Build quality? A Dyson is 90% PLASTIC. There is nothing new in it. The only thing similar to Apple is the lies in the marketing.

    Dyson uses old school propulsion. I like my roomba the best. Now that is innovation imo. :D

    They are very parallel companies but

    As a MacBook pro 2011 owner I am condfident there is no way that Dyson would never make their customers foot the bill for a defect.

    Dyson engineers don't have to say they are genius they get on with it. Cost of onsite service with parts and outside warranty even is truly first class, putting Apple and pretty much every other company to shame at least here in the UK anyway.

    And his sole failure product and I can think of rather more apples - the washing machine that wasn't bad just over engineered and more unreliable. Every owner I knew got rid for letting them down too often - when you need your washing done with too many call outs.

    The heater is next on my list.
