    Dun remind me.

    I get such a gawddamned backache each time I sit in my office chair for a prolonged period. And hell, I'm not even 45yrs old to begin with!

    I don't see how using an Apple product correlates to the topic at hand.

    The pros of using the $800 chairs outweigh the cons of not having them.

    If they have these chairs instead of the rickety creaky cheap office swivel chairs in the labs, I will stay and work in Uni till late

    Sorry i saw your avatar... Most of the products are of very high quality just like when you say Volvo, you think of safety!

    The iMac I saw... I wish that I have the spare cash to buy it!

    that is horrible logic

    i suggest you go ride a cherry qq and tell me whether you feel like buying it, finishing and looks aside

    the car feels very rickety, like a pack of cards. now imagine if those pack of cards fall apart

    a better example would be a toyota versus a same-sized bmw, perhaps

    i can throw this back at you - those cheap cheap china brand camera costs maybe $120 for 10 mgp.. dslr costs a few k for 10 mgp.. both can take pictures, the premium for brand and quality is always there

    I think cheap synthetic ones will last much longer. price is not really a good determination how long something will last.
    ...leather one right...

    my family bought one, and i was made to continuously take care of it when i was younger.. got what moisturising lotion, etc

    lasted for about 7 to 8 years, then we moved and it just went

    you never ask the salesman how to take care of it

    i think in singapore, most chairs have their lifespan cut short by at least half.
    Even those tough kopitiam plastic chairs won't last long by singapore's standards
    Even if its a square block on concrete...probably kena sit until round. haaa

    Either overused till disrepair or one fine day they disappear and kena replaced by something else silently overnight.
    Some new CEO/boss/MD/VC comes in and say, "I don't like this, change it!"..... So what if it last XX years? Will the current CEO/boss/MD/VC last XX years?

    I think with modern manufacturing processes, durability and design can be had for well under $800 a pop.

    IMO, airport authorities too loose with the purse strings.
