I know the Aeron is like the gold standard of chairs, but I'm quite taken with the Herman Miller Embody (I think that spine-like structure on the back looks awesome). I've heard it billed in some places as superior to the Aeron- and it's also a bit more expensive.
I upgraded to an Embody from an Aeron when they first came out.
I noticed a pretty big difference, especially with reclining/still having poor posture in the chair. While it is kind of odd to still have poor posture in an ergonimcal chair, I'm getting there haha. The chair really moves with you and there's pretty much no position I can get into and not feel pretty good about.
The only downside to the chair is the lack of head rest. If you're not leaning back/sprawling out, or a pretty tall person such as myself you probably wouldn't notice, but it was the one thing about leaps/freedoms that I always wished the aeron/embody had on it. For normal sitting it's definitely not an issue, but again I'm not always in work work work mode while at the PC.
The price stings a bit, I paid around $1400 for mine, though I imagine they've went down a bit. If you work at a desk it's well worth the investment though. $1400 for something I'm going to be using 1/3 to 1/2 of every day is a very easy decision for me at least.
