Seems like every other one in the chair section seems to be in the bbc somewhere

The one I have in work atm is the type with the pump that fills the lower back area. The arms go up & down too.

Very true.

It's probably true also that the 'comfortable' chairs are great if u don't sit in them most of the day

They used to have posture-enforcing chairs in schools some time ago. Til kids had spasms cos they're still growing.

im currently using a kneeling chair and it does nothing for me really.

I tried one at college which basically wedged into the lumbar section. Loved it - so i need a heavily lumbar supported chair

I'd definitely agree with Viking Direct. Last I checked they had a pretty good selection and the prices were pretty reasonable.

I got fed up looking in shops and got mine from a breakers yard!

You can get all shapes and sizes, even lumbar support. Just watch out for electric seats or you'll need a power source as well.

Ha ha (This really is my office chair)

This is the chair that I have :

http://www.viking-direct.co.uk/a/sku...Q22&id=979261/

Now, I know what your'e thinking.... £100 WTF ?

But trust me, it's perfect and you can get it in different coulours, or check out the rest of their products. This one goes up/down, sit to attention or lazy boy style !

Oh yeah and btw, it cost me £82 last year but definately worth it.

At the time, I had a silver tower, cream monitor and silver speakers etc. Now everything including my desk is matte black but it still looks good, although it has to be noted that constant maintanence is required. My desire to wear jeans has left the bum bit a shade of blue, I'm sure I could clean it but can't really be bothered. You can get in black for £85 tho...

Sprento that chair is sweet and I have considered it, however I can't help thinking that it wouldn't stay clean for very long

Buying the right parts for your PC is always hard and knowing that you made the right choice is important. Little things like your mates' commenting on your new rig, hitting the high scores on 3DMark or being able to play the latest games at the highest settings help reinforce your decision and allow you to sleep at night.

However, in my opinion, comments such as "Sprento that chair is sweet" is what it's all about. Cheers AntiHeroUK, you just made my day !!!
