Babies don't fail THUNDERDOME

I am in need of a new computer chair, and I didn't see an appropriate thread or forum. Since some of us spend 4 hours or longer each day sitting in a chair in front of the computer, I figure it would be worthwhile to ask. Here is what I am looking for:

- Adjustable height, pretty standard on almost any office chair.
- Comfortable, given here.
- Metal arm rests? I have had a cheap leather chair from Office Depot in the past that have had the plastic arms eventually break off. It might have just been the chair itself, but if metal covered with faux leather or fabric doesn't add much to the price
- Good price. Not so much a budget, but nothing overpriced, gimmicky, etc. I'd like a chair for cheap, but a sturdy one.

- Leans forward as well as back. I don't see this too often, so I guess this is optional.

I guess the standard offerings in this category as far as online dealers go include Staples, Office Depot, Costco, Ikea. Any others? How about sites with frequent sales/coupons/other good deals?

Maybe we need a Furniture Funhouse sub forum.

Here's 80% of the probable answers in this thread: Aeron, Steelcase Leap (although I'm a fan of the Steelcase Criteron myself).

Try to find them used locally, they'll last forever.

Those chairs look amazing, but too rich for what I am looking to spend right now, at least as far as the new price goes. Do these show up on Craigslist often? Or with huge (30, 40, 50%) price breaks or sales?
