As I understand it, your Aeron is too far from the ground if your legs are hanging off the edge of the chair. Could that be why the edge is bothering you two?
FatBaldGuy, I’m deeply involved with a technology startup. During the summer, I’m sitting on my ass for upwards of eight hours a day, and during the academic year school work often results in the same situation. I don’t see what being in a college dorm room has to do with it - should I buy crappy stuff just because I’m living in a dorm? What’s the difference between my dorm room and my office back in Connecticut, except that I spend more time in the former location?
If the chair is as comfortable as the hype would have me believe, it seems like it’s worth it. If not, I’m asking what alternatives are out there. I don’t mean to be rude, but I can’t believe that anything approaching the height of quality seating design is sitting under a quarter-inch-thick layer of dust at my local OfficeMax.
