Thanks for the comments everyone....
Problem is that it looks too futuristic. I feel like a tool vacuuming with R2D2 in my hands. Also, want a canister.

I commercial office machines at home. I have 2 printers, one is strictly for color laser printing, the other is a Xerox C2424 commercial all in one (no fax) which is brilliant with a USB fax modem. Win 7 has a solid fax utility that both sends and receives faxes, you can scan and fax in one shot over the network. You can pickup used commercial printers for a song. Ink is expensive, that's the only drawback.
I also have a polycom, great for conference calls, great speaker, beats a cordless phone speaker by miles: if you work from home regularly, I highly recommend it.

I have a shop vac, I've actually been using it for a while. There is a reason I want a regular vacuum. Its not useful.

Yes. Mine was and I'm really glad.
