The basics are the same. Click a wand to the vacuum core and a vacuum head to that. You're ready to roll.

It has the same engine as the other Dyson sticks, but the blue cap at the end holds a HEPA filter, a first for the line.

The normal filter is still there, and it pulls out easily for cleaning.

The Absolute comes with more attachments than the rest, and two full-size vacuum heads.

The first vacuum head is the same one that you'll find on the v6 Motorhead. It's meant for carpets and spins the bristles with its own direct drive engine.

The soft roller cleaner head is brand-new. Meant for hardwood floors, the head replaces bristles with a full width roller that maintains contact with the floor as it spins, keeping a seal to help the vac capture small particles. It's also designed to get over the top of larger particles, letting you clean a variety of messes without the usual danger of scratches caused by spinning bristles.

Remove the wand and snap any of the pieces to the vacuum cleaner's core for handheld cleaning.
