what a pain in the

computing position. I must have the most uncomfortable chair imaginable.I can usually only manage about 30 minutes at a time. Could someone please suggest an online supplier of reasonably priced office chairs and any advice on what to look for would be great.

Go to any office supplies store - staples, Office World, PC World etc - and sit in one. Its the only way to be sure. Get one that supports your back and which you can sit upright in - it will have to be height adjustable.

also another good thing too look out for is auctions...

When a local company goes into liquidation all it's assests are either taken away for other purposes or more often auctioned.

You can pick up really good deals here! Went to know a few years back. My mate picked up a panasonic 19" monitor for £20 and i got a nice leather office chair for £15! (amonst other stuff; quite nice it was until my mates trashed it one night!

Look out in the local paper or look in a local directory for auctioners.

to give you an idea of how much i saved... I looked in the viking direct catalogue (anb office supplier) and same chair was going vo around £149.99) if i remember correctly.

OK so it had been used, but for a nice comfy chair it wasn't bad. Nice arm rests, adustable almost everything! seat height, back rest height, back rest angle, back rest Z axis position, and of course arm rst adjustment.

Good suggestion by DS. I would add that arm supports are a great help, especially over long periods. I originally used a typist chair, but it proved to be a total failure for all the obvious reasons [bad back,aching limbs].Moved up a step to an executive leather style chair, and never once have I considered it a bad buy. Nearly all the modern day suppliers stock a 'mock' type executive leatherette chair at constant discount prices,so check these out and go for it, you will see and feel the difference.

Just noticed Mysticnas's posting. The chair that I use was purchased via a liquidation auction.Two good/top quality executive chairs and two poorer grade chairs for the pricely sum of £60.00 the lot.

Thanks for all suggestions. I went to Staples & PC world today to have a look around. I tried a very comfortable leather faced chair with padded arms for £119.Also saw a fabric one for £99 ,but the actual seat was too short.
Good sugestion about a local sale. we have one here every wednesday so before deciding I'll go along to see whats on sale.

Many thanks for that. There are some really good prices at Viking. When my wife comes home later I think I'll order one. Let her decide colours etc.
