I've been working from home for several years now, but I've been sitting on the same cheap task chair that my mom bought me when I started my full-time undergrad studies back in 1991. The pneumatic thingy that keeps my overweight derriere in the air is starting to fail, the thing never had ergonomic features worth the name, and, most importantly, I finally have the capital to make my first serious investment in my home workspace.
I've admired Aeron chairs since they came out, but mostly for the custom-fit options and the mesh; the brand still seems to add too much to the cost for the use value of the darned things. I want a mesh back because I live in Florida and am tight-fisted about A/C--breathability seems almost as important in a work chair as it is in underwear. I want strong ergonomics, but I also like to tuck one leg up on my chair seat for a while now and then, so maybe Aeron-type chairs are to "disicplined" a design for someone like me.
Any chance this mess-o'-online-communities has some folks who've shopped hard in this area and are willing to share the wisdom? I didn't find much canned help in my first round of rooting the web on the subject.
