Not sure that will improve efficiency :wink:
Think I might get seasick. Or dizzy at least.

Hm, I bet if I put some 800 grit on it I could use it to lap my heatsink. (Er no, no double entendres.)

The Herman Miller dealer found their "B" sized Aeron and I've exchanged the big "C" size one for it today. There is quite a difference, and the "B" is a much better fit for me. It is noticably smaller than the "C" was, and much more comfortable for me, even though I am just a bit over 6' tall. This one does not have the Posturefit thing, but only a plain old lumbar support.

I'll post a follow-up on this in a few days or so, as right now I have only been using the "B" size Aeron for a few minutes, but the difference is dramatic. Getting the right size of Aeron is critical, and most of the dealers seem pretty accommodating about it.

BTW, the dealer suggests that I keep this chair for two weeks, then return it and pick up a Mirra loaner to check that out for two weeks before I decide what I like best. Geez, I wish more places that sell stuff were this nice about it!

Update: Have had a Mirra chair from the local Herman Miller dealer since Monday evening. Love it! My 23-year-old daughter and I think it has much better back support than the Aeron. Much more comfortable. Even my price-conscious wife liked the Mirra, although she thought it looked a bit too big for our Florida Room. Her comment on the Aeron was "I could never be comfortable in a chair that expensive." And, icing on the cake, the Mirra comes in lots more colors than the Aeron, so you can order one that is not so office-looking. Is less expensive too.

Sadly I only get to keep the Mirra for a few more days, but if I buy a top-line office chair it will probably be a Mirra. That is a BIG "if," though, as I may decide to build custom stereo/bookcases with some arrangement that lets me work, either on the computer or other stuff, from a regular house furniture type chair.

I have a Vitra Ypsilon. It wasn't cheap, but it was one of the best 'investments' that I made. Designed by Mario Bellini, one of my favorite designers. It received Red Dot award in 2002 in product design category.

I googled for Vitra Ypsilon, thought it looked nice, and then I saw the price tag. It's taken several large shots of Caol Ila to steady my nerves...

Heh, yes, it isn't cheap. But I see that as an investment. I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, so a chair with endless adjustment possibilites to be able to sit comfortable was important for me.

As for the cost, well, given the years that I'll be using it, it's not that bad. It's already been 5 years since I bought it and I'm guessing that I'll be owning it for another couple of years. It makes like a couple of hundreds bucks a year.

Obviously, it is a Computer Chair that is enough for daily office use not for game player. I bought Arozzi Monz. I am more inclined to the high back game chair, which is really comfortable for long games. It's much cheaper than the DX Racer, plus its vinyl/tread, so it can be wiped off, unlike the cheapest DX, which is a very durable fabric, but still a fabric that won't wipe clean.

It would appear that it would be agreeable for staring at the television or perusing however may be no picnic for the back in the wake of sitting at the console some time.
