Herman-Miller Mirra - a 700EUR office chair

The Tech Report has an interesting review, this time they didn't take a look at a piece of computer hardware but a 700EUR office chair from Herman-Miller:
I was still not convinced, though. Was a chair really worth that much money? I half-jokingly suggested it to my girlfriend, hoping to shock her with mention of the €700 price tag, but instead she said, "Go for it." Suddenly, it all made sense. People like me, we spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars on our computers, monitors, TVs, and other everyday items, but when it comes to a desk chair, we see no issue with settling for a $50-100 office surplus model. Yet in my case, since I work from home, I spend the majority of my time in it. Isn't a bigger investment worth it if it keeps me from having back problems when I'm in my 30s? Considering the 12-year warranty on the Mirra, I could see no reason to pass up the opportunity.>/blockquote> Check it out over here.
