Default New computer chair.

I am such a noob..

Man I've been dealing with this POS cushioned folding chair for over two years now.. Always been meaning to get a new chair.

Well today I finally did and I can feel my back healing already.



FFS.. $39.99 is all it took.

Must be nice to have a new chair. I'm using the same old one for like 4 years now. It's not as crappy as your old one, however I should upgrade soon here.

Every now and then you find a good deal.


There was another brand chair exactly like this one for $179.99.. I couldn't tell a difference except for the threading in the leather (and the armrests had small cushioning)..

Mine was Made in China.. I didn't think to look at where the other one was made (likely US).

Your poor back! I used a real crappy chair before but it wasn't a folding chair. I had it forever, and it had no padding in the seat at all. This one is so much better.

I got a similar chair, unfortunately I paid about 120$ CAN at Costco. That's about the only smartest deal you can find around here.

But I have no regrets. This is a f**king nice chair. I even sleep on it sometime

The only drawback is I have to vaccuum it often.

I'd suggest putting some kind of slip cover or something on it, because my friend had that same chair and the leather started peeling a few months into having it.

I was afraid of that.. due to how cheap it was and all. I'll wait a bit and see how long it takes for this one to start peeling.. and then I'll have to find something to protect it with.

Mine is leather too. Dust is accumulating on some sewings and foldings.
