More horsepower

Under the hood, it boasts a battery upgrade, with lithium ion replacing the nickel metal halide battery of older models.

Cleaning modes

Another upgrade: cleaning modes. The new Neato's got two of them -- Turbo mode and Eco mode. Turbo mode just runs the Neato at its normal full speed, but Eco mode runs the motor at a more relaxed pace for lighter, quieter cleaning runs. That's a nice options -- Neatos tend to get a bit noisy at full power.

Scheduling

You'll be able to schedule automated cleaning runs right in the app. No more bending over and clicking through the scheduler on the Neato's tiny screen.
