I've taken up daily running to get some exercise, getting up and stretching every now and then and such which has helped somewhat, but being in the computer industry, and with most of my hobbies surrounding computers, sitting for long periods can't be avoided. So I'm considering investing in a professional, ergonomic office chair to give myself that extra comfort.
I've heard a lot about the herman miller Aeron, and have enquired at the only store listed in NZ as a distributor, but I've heard it goes for $2500 new here, which is way, way over budget, and getting it second hand would lose the 12 year warranty it has on it, which is a large portion of it's value so that isn't ideal either.
As for budget, I don't really know what figure to give. Ideally under $700 but based on advice, I can extend that to say $1500, but going higher will be unlikely. I prefer new rather than second hand, I don't care about looks, only quality and comfort. The cheaper the better obviously, but if something expensive will help me not be a cripple in 20 years, and will last most of those 20 years then I'll call it an investment and stomach the cost.
Any advice would be appreciated!
