Our picks for the week: Dyson Micro 1.5kg, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 and more

Every week, there are plenty of new products emerging in the consumer tech realm. At times, it becomes impossible to cover all of them. Here, we pick the new products of the week and deliver them to you in bite-size format.

Dyson Micro 1.5kg
S$599, available exclusively in Lazada

As its name implies, the Dyson Micro 1.5kg is the British home appliance company’s lightest stick vacuum cleaner weighing at 1.5kg. Dyson claims that it is the only 1.5kg machine in the market to achieve 99.99 per cent filtration with no loss of suction power.

The Micro features Dyson’s Hyperdymium motor (with up to 105,000rpm) and its smallest cyclone pack ever (with eight root cyclones) to generate forces of up to 96,000g to fling dust into the bin rather than the filter. It also comes with a re-engineered Micro Fluffy cleaner head to remove fine dust from hard floors.
