Oh yeah I totally agree. When you have some high-end chairs from Steelcase and Herman Miller, The Secret Lab stuff seems second rate, but still great for home use.

Nice one Samurai! Free is great!

I personally don't believe in paying for computer chairs; every single one I've used I found for free! :lol:

Speaking of chairs (or maybe free chairs since no one was around), when I was still working in Manhattan three years ago, on the way to the office, I saw this thing:

All this chair talk reminded me of what ever this thing was.

That's a strange piece of furniture. Gotta love all the random stuff left out on the sidewalk in the city. A few months ago I saw two PS2 Rockband guitars randomly left out next to a mailbox in my neighborhood. Lol.

Have you guys seen those kneeling chairs with pads for the knees?

Who the fuck KNEELS in a chair?

Also does anyone have any experience with the Retroid Pocket 2? I'm considering getting those for my nieces in lieu of Switches. Between four of them, a few accessories (HDMI cable, carrying case and screen protectors) and the shipping, it'd cost $470. That doesn't include 128GB microSD cards. So far my mom and Robyn seem to agree they'd be good yet cheaper alternatives to Switches. And split the cost ten ways and we all could TOTALLY swing that.

My experience with the Retroid Pocket 2 is you shouldn't be spending money on your nieces and get your own financial house in order.

It's not just me. Robyn said she'd kick in some money if it's not just me. And my Mom did say she had some money. Plus my brother, his ex-wife and ex-girlfiend, and possibly his current girlfriend, are probably liable to kick in.

The Retroid Pocket 2 is a pain in the ass to configure with games and whatnot. Go for one of the Abernic units instead for ease of use, even though the Retroid Pocket 2 is a hair more powerful.

Also, put a hard cap on how much you'll put in and make sure you're covering your essentials (like rent) FIRST.
