Price range? You can't go wrong w/ a Herman Miller Embody.

Too bad you don't like Staples, they usually have the most choice. Like said above Cosco has a few too.

OK ya i get the price range question now, a $1400 chair is a little out of my snack bracket, looks like a sweet chair though. Id like to spend less then $400. I may spend 8+ hours a day in it but, I'm not old yet.

Ya the Staples by me is pretty much an evil empire, and id rather not give them any money if i don't need too.

If I'm going to spend $1400 on a chair, that chair better be "good" to me.

I've been looking at the HM Aeron for a while now but can't seem to find anywhere local to try one out. We used to have several dealers but they all seem to have gone bust in the last 3 years.

I use an Aeron at work. Very comfortable. But probably out of the OP's price range, as the base model starts around $6-700.
