The best treadmills are those that combine functionality with ease of use and price, along with other factors. The treadmills that follow represent the top 5 found on the market today.

The Sole F80 is one of the top 5 treadmills available, according to shoppers. This is also one of the best foldable treadmills available. Users can fold the treadmill for easy carrying, travel and storage. It weighs in at just 350 pounds and contains rollers underneath the surface, which increases its durability. The F80 from Sole is 55 inches long and 20 inches wide, with a wide surface for running or walking. It comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, with a five year warranty on other parts. The company also agrees to service problems in the owner’s home, rather than forcing them to send it off. It’s best for those who like running on a treadmill, but aren’t ready to make a more serious investment since it retails for $1,500.

Sole is the manufacturer of the F63, which also makes the list of the top 5 treadmills. This treadmill is priced at just $999, making it the cheapest one on the list and more affordable for some shoppers. It’s perfect for those who don’t have a lot of money, but still want a quality machine. This folding treadmill weighs 325 pounds and comes with an optional pulse monitor that attaches to the chest while walking. The F63 has a three year warranty and comes with built in speakers. Users can attach their Mp3 player directly to the machine while walking.

The Platinum Pro VR treadmill from PaceMaster also makes the list of the top 5 treadmills. The treadmill has a negative incline, which allows runners to go at their own speed and adjust the incline for a more serious experience. It’s great for those who run frequently and need a machine capable of giving them the same experience they’d find outside, or those who want something more professional. It measures 60 inches long by 20 inches wide for a large running surface and holds up to 400 pounds at one time. It’s priced at $2,500.

Landice makes the L770 Home Cardio Trainer Treadmill, which also makes the list. This is best for those who want the same experience as one they’d find in the gym since this is a professional treadmill. This is priced at $3,300, but it’s strong enough for constant daily use. It has a soft running engine for a quiet run and a 3 horsepower engine that allows it to be used frequently. The treadmill features a built in programming system that allows runners to customize their routine.

Last on the list of the top 5 treadmills is the budget friendly Gold’s Gym 450 priced at just $375. This machine is best for those who want a treadmill for exercise, but aren’t daily runners since it isn’t as strong as the more expensive models. It comes with 6 programs that automatically adjust as the owner walks or runs on the treadmill. It also allows users to input the amount of calories they want to burn, and the machine creates a workout around that number. The treadmill is lightweight and has a running surface of 50 inches long and 18 inches wide.

Hawk is a humanoid, autonomous, wireless, and handsome robot made by Canadian company Dr. Robot. He's got WiFi, a GPS navigation system, dual cameras in his moveable, animated head, and a host of other cameras and sensors that keep him trucking along. Designed with education in mind, Hawk's skill set is a bit limited, but his hands are pretty impressive. Hawk is on sale now, and while there's no price listed for the bot, base parts of the robot are in the range of $5,000. Video of Hawk beating the skins after the break: yes, we're aware of the fact that he's not exactly John Bonham but, then again -- neither are any of your friends, right?
