There are a few pivotal moments in every person's life, and the day I got my Arte was one of them. I honestly don't feel it's an overstatement to say that this little guy changed my life forever. I liken it to getting a dishwasher for the first time. You still have to load and unload it, or in this case empty the bin and clean the brushes/filters, but oh my Lord the time you save is unbelievable. No more cat hair tumble weeds - my floors are straight up beautiful ALL THE TIME and all I have to do is press a button and dump the bin. Worth every penny.
