CNN Money's "Best of the New" report:
"Robert DeNiro has a Vectra weight-lifting system delivered to his hotel whenever he's on location for a film. Mere mortals can make do with the brand-new Vectra On-Line 4850, which features more than 29 exercises and can be used by anyone, flabby or fit. For Arnold wannabes, the bench press peaks at 310 pounds of resistance; for beginners, counterbalances can cut that to 10 pounds. The price tag is justified by the best ball bearings and pulley mechanisms available, so there's incredibly smooth motion on every exercise. And thoughtful touches like contoured leg pads keep you from smashing your shins while doing leg extensions. This Vectra home gym needs just 90 square feet to set up and is handsome enough to stand in plain view -- so it's that much harder for you to ignore."
