Roombas are the robot vacuum of record, and if you’ve been scrimping on sweeping and dusting, it might behoove you to invest in one of these tiny helpers — specifically the 801 model — now that it’s 20 percent off. It’s a little more advanced than the entry-level 600-class Roombas, and somewhere closer to this 960 grid-sweeping model that writer Lori Keong reviewed and loved: It combines an enhanced suction power (thanks to its Aeroforce cleaning system) with intuitive sensors to avoid getting lost underneath the kitchen table, as well as a scheduling feature so it can pick up your mess while you’re away.
