Our old $60 Hoover has pretty much conked out on us and we need a new vacuum cleaner and thought I would open it up to suggestion from you fine people. We're NOT going to by a Dyson, I don't care if they're awesome or not. Looking to spend up to a $100. We prefer to have BAGGED vacuum cleaners due to the dust and everything that comes out of a BAGLESS one when you dump the canister in the trash but could be sold on a BAGLESS. What do you have? What do you recommend? Stupid thread? Yes!! But when you are neurotic about your carpet, these things matter!
