  chair for extensive computer usage 
 Date Written 
R S Feb 10, 2008, 05:40pm EST Report Abuse

I'm looking for a chair in the 200$> price range. I use a computer up to 6-8 hours a day at times and the chair I use now is pretty lousy. I have a bit of a back problem now and I don't know if it is due to my current chair or because I don't stretch it out enough. I have looked at staples/officemax/officedepot and it's hard to see what is good because I cannot sit in the store for 6 hrs and find out which will feel comfortable for a long duration. Anyone have any good suggestions?

I always buy my office chairs at Costco, because if I dont like them, I can take them back - even well after the purchase date.

Stables do good seats at resonable price, I've sat in them in the store, but to be honest any seat is going to uncomfortable if you are sitting in it 6-8 hours. That isn't good. I have to get up after hour or so and have a walk around, because you can get Deep Vein Thrombosis if you don't.

Yeah Ian is right, sitting in a chair for 6 hours straight is just not healthy for your body.

Color doesn't matter. And yeah I do get up every hour or so. But just sitting in a chair constantly even if it isn't totally nonstop does not feel good in a cheapo seat.
