    Computer chairs

    Hello Everyone!

    I assume that a lot of us spend a considerable amount of time in front of our computers so what we sit in should be a pretty comfortable thing. I am in the market for a new chair and it only seemed right to ask others what they prefer.

    I am thinking of getting a mesh chair similar to the one seen here and I was curious what everyone else prefers. I live in Chicago so the weather in the winter isn't too big of a deal but in the summer the leather chair I have now can get pretty hot.

    Anyway, what do you think?

    looks like a very nice chair. is mesh comfortable though? i like my padded fake leather one, although it was a cheapo one and broke recently. my advice is spend a few extra dollars and get something that you know is going to be built well.

    failing that, build your own

    I hurt.

    So a comfortable chair is very important.

    To find a chair that is comfortable to use for 12 hours or more a day is not an easy task, at least for me; I have had at least half a dozen of the wrong chairs, I wish I had found the right one at the start, I would have saved a lot of money, time & discomfort.

    My solution was not cheap, though I expect it will be an heirloom, due to the quality of its construction. I use a Recaro office chair. It is a very high quality automobile seat with adjustable squab, back, head rest & lumbar support. It also incorporates the usual height & tilt routine.

    Some years ago it cost me over $1000- Oz. Everyday I consider it to be one of my better investments, my only regret is that I hadn't purchased it 25 years ago.

    Re: Computer chairs

    I have a fake leather office chair which I consider quite comfortable with arm rests. The only complaint, is that my elbows are so bony, that the leather on the arms have cracked and began ripping. I taped them up (which everyone thinks looks strange) but it just keeps getting worse!

    I don't believe I could use a chair that didn't have arms. But other than that, I'm not too particular

    Re: Computer chairs

    Thanks for the input all and hello DrSmall!

    I have a fake leather chair now and like I said the seat is starting to tear and it gets hot in the summer.

    I like the Herman Miller chairs but I just can't justify spending $600-800 on a chair atm

    I got a cheap task chair for free with my printer. It's turned out to be the best product I've ever bought (even if it was free). Great posture, comfort, and durability.

    I have a chair similar to this, except it was much cheaper.
