    It’s not comfortable if you’ve been sitting there working for the past ~8 hours. I know a lot of people with computer-based jobs prefer playing games in different rooms of the house so that they can do something besides sit in front of their computer.

        Seconded.

        I keep a wireless mouse and keyboard near both of my TVs/comfy chairs and have a main controller I use wireless in one room but wired in another so I don’t need to re-pair it.

        My gaming PC is setup for Wake On LAN so I can wake it from my phone. Once work is over I can melt into a recliner and either take over the TV as my computer or (if the wife wants the TV and I want to hang out) pull out the Deck and load up Moonlight on that

        It’s not about physical comfort, but the environment. I have a beefy gaming desktop but most of the time I end up playing on my SD in the living room because I associate my office with work.

        Highly recommend buying a second hand/used Aeron chair. They are stupid expensive new, but luckily they are popular with tech startups. When those startups inevitably fail, they sell their chairs at a deep discount. I’ve bought two like that and I suspect they will last forever.

        One is a decade old and the only thing that has failed was a hip joint. $12 on eBay and we’re back in business.

        I really want a Håg Capisco to replace my cheap Ikea Järvfjället. Shit’s super ergonomic, I always prefer those at work.
