My System Specs

Default My newest addition

Well I figured I wanted to show off the newest addition to my setup. Not only the newest but also one of the most important pieces you can buy.

So without further ado, I introduce my new.........








chair!!!



I know you might have expected something different, but hey I sit here many an hour so I figured it was time to get a better one. Well that and the fact that the old chair broke and the back wouldn't stay straight and was about to fall right off.

So I picked up this baby down at staples for a reasonable $99.95. It is leather, has the height adjusting thing, and you can lean back nice in it. Oh yea and did I mention it also has a massage function. Yup, independant controls for upper and lower back and the intensity, overall works pretty good.

Well there you have it, the newest addition to my rig. Of course the thing is so comfortable I will surely end up with more stories for my falling asleep thread.

Haha, you're right it is the last thing I was expecting. But I agree having a nice chair is one of the most important parts of a setup! No matter how good your rig is you can't enjoy it if your chair is not comfortable. I wish my chair had a massage function...

There is a small issue I am finding though, it is almost too damn comfortable. You see that was always a reason to get up from the computer, you got sore from sitting for so long. But this thing is pretty damn comfy and I tell you what I sure don't want to get up.

I have a chair similar to that. My wife got it at Costco. I've fallen asleep in it many times.

At first when I just saw that picture, I thought you got a new monitor.

I've been on the same chair for YEARS and the back already broke off.. It broke off a couple days after I got it actually. Maybe I should get a new chair too.. One with wayyy more functions than yours, then I'll be happy.

Well I sure see a bunch of good comments so far.

As for the model number what it says on the box is model 7290 SKU 734154 and the maker is true designs.

I looked on the staples site and could not find it so you might just have to take a look at the store.

Nice looking chair. I use the tight-wad approach.. a lawn chair with a chair-pad, and small pillow on it. This works better than anything i've tried, and with my FUBAR back, i need good support. If the chair breaks.. i grab another... we still have a dozen more outside. This is my second in 4 years.
