If you are going to spend the money on a HON chair then you might as well buy something good.
You don’t want a padded bottom. You want mesh. Buy a remastered Aeron
I started with those plush "executive" chairs with lots of padding and they all took a big beating by year 3. I finally stepped up to a higher grade mesh chair and it has definitely lasted longer, maybe year 5 now? It's hard to tell, but it feels more supportive but less comfortable, if that makes sense? The plushness of the cheapos feel great, but much like a hooker deep down it feels kind of vapid and void.
Keeping these in mind when it's time to upgrade. Computer first, then chair
And thanks Ned.
