OMG! If you can afford it, don't think about it, run out and get one!!
I just got one in December with my Airmiles! I absolutely love it! I have such a hard time vacuuming furniture because of my back and the fact that I don't have much upper body endurance. With the turbine head for the furniture it's amazing! I can actually vacuum my 4 dining room chairs, couch and love seat without having to stop and take a "back break" and because the tool does all the work for you, it takes me less than 10 minutes to do all of that!
Here are a couple of threads about my Dyson Animal:

Another thing I like about it is that it's easy to empty. And the fact that with the turn of a dial I can go directly from carpet to hard floor, so it's easy to keep up with the vacuuming between Homecare cleaning weeks. When homecare is here they do a more thorough vacuuming using the actual floor tool, but I can keep up with the main spaces in between their visits.
The first time I used it I must have had 2 inches of cat dander sucked out of my couch cushions. That stuff is fine like drywall dust, and between the suction and the rotating brush on the turbine head my couch went from grey to black and I stopped sneezing when in my livingroom!
