One thing I don't understand. Y'all guys spending hundreds on expensive hardware but keep forgetting about the most important - yourself. What i mean by that is high quality chair, footstool, appropriate lightning etc. Keep it real with yourself...Click image for larger version

My € 75-ish chair is comfortable enough for me... granted, a lot of my computer usage happens while I'm on the road so I don't really spend a lot of time at my desk, but still.

It does the job and I like it, I don't need a € 250 chair for that.

I've seen identical for $25 lol. This 'does the job' saying is so overrated in fact doesn't even make sense in regards with having latest 'up to date' hardware which just cos its 2009-201 'doesn't do the job'...

You don't need to spend a tonne of money to get good quality products that are good for your health.

Just because the chair was $25 doesn't mean it was a bad chair or is going to cause him any injury by using it.

If anything, More expensive chairs are more adjustable and can end up with the user adjusting them incorrectly and doing more damage than good.

Maybe some of us just aren't as sensitive? I got my chair on sale several years ago at Staples for $60, and I've been fine with it. I have no complaints about back pain or shoulder pain or any other kind of pain, so why upgrade when I don't need it? Some people spend thousands of dollars on speakers; I use the built-in speakers of my rMBP. I have no complaints, so why spend the money?

I also held onto my late-2006 MBP until a couple months ago when it died. I just had no reason to get something better when what I had served me fine.

Thought it was about time a new thread was created.
