Replacement wand to replace broken one on old vacuum: 65€. New budget vacuum with good reviews: 60€. The choice was clear. It only has a couple of downsides, in that it makes a high pitched whine at less than near-max suction and the cord is just a little too short to reach everywhere in the apartment without replugging it, but other than that it's much lighter, the motor isn't nearly so loud, and I'm certain it gets the floor cleaner in general since my allergies weren't acting up anywhere near as badly as they usually do by vacuuming day. Old vacuum is over 15 years old, missing most of its attachments, and the pads and brushes on the 'head' part have long since worn down completely, so... maybe it wasn't such a bad thing that the wand broke. Now I 'just' need a Windows 10 license, a jacket, and a pair or two of decent shorts.
