Dyson Digital Slim DC59 Animal cordless vacuum

For the last few years, the design of Dyson's Digital Slim cordless vacuum cleaners hasn't changed much on the outside, but with each new generation, the company makes its high-end portable vacs more powerful while improving the battery life.
In the case of Dyson's latest and greatest model, the Digital Slim DC59 Animal, the company is billing it as a conventional vacuum replacement, saying it offers three times more suction power than any other cordless vacuum on the market. Battery life has also improved from about 20 minutes to 26 minutes (the battery is a "re-engineered" fade-free nickel manganese cobalt battery).
