Can anyone help me find a computer chair that is extremely comfortable, flexible, with good back support?

I'm looking for something to buy either online or in store. Price range up to $1000.

I find that trying the chairs out - sitting in them for a while in various positions and working the controls - is the best way to find out what is the most comfortable.

People are built differently. I tried out a chair that the owner swore was the most comfortable and adjustable, and I was in agony sitting in it. There was no way to adjust it to make it comfortable for me. Seat curvature makes a HUGE difference in comfort, and that is virtually unadjustable in any chair.

You might try your local office furniture/machine/supply stores and see what they have and try them out. Preferably a store with good on the floor customer service.

I am new in this forum and I am making reply on old topic"The Comfiest Computer Chair" because I must understand for this topic.Hi folks, I wanna share something. I was looking for a cool looking office chair for my renovated home office, wanted something of a designer look. Went to Staples and bought Rialto Office Chair yesterday, it's awesome. Aluminum frame, mesh seat, really great quality at a reasonable price. I did not even know, but when I had it at home, a friend mentioned that the design is from the famous Charles Eames. I did not know Staples has such great product - it made my day and my new office!

Hi James and welcome to the forum!

Do you happen to have a link for the chair that you bought at Staples?
I am in the market for a new office chair and was unable to find the one you listed on the Staples website

Thanks!
In the beginning there was the command line.

Aeron. Been sitting in mine since 2000, sometimes for 14+ hours a day depending on the work load. No fatigue, no foam or fabric to wear out, very adjustable. They come in 3 sizes. I bought the largest, but wish I had gotten the medium. Still, best chair I have ever sat in. In 2000 it cost me $800, so that's only $80 a year, and the condition is still like new (keeping in mind that I *sit* in my chair and don't beat the piss out of it.) I don't know what they cost today, but the fact that HM is still making them is a testament to the product.
