Don't go for gaming chairs. Get an ergonomic chair, check out featherlite they have stores in all major cities so you can go and try and maybe get a better deal. I have had a lot of back problems since the past 4-5 years and I use featherlite at home and work, these chairs provide great support and are comfy.

I was gonna get one from Featherlite only upon your recommendation but all of their decent high back chairs are oos in Delhi.

I bought one from Ergospace, Gurgaon and that was close enough and for a lesser price.

I guess wfh has led to a major increase in demand and their production is not able to meet it. Ergospace looks good too.

I recently was looking to buy a chair for wfh as well and mainly found that ergonomic work chairs are much better than these.

These gaming chairs have a shallow lumbar support, body ends up hunching into the cavity while mesh back in a work chair is able to contour around you.

 

Have a look at something like this:

 

https://delhi.featherlitestore.com/product/helix-high-back-mesh-chair/

 

https://ergospace.in/collections/office-chairs/products/elan-high-back-mesh-chair-wfhc-33

 

These chairs don't come cheap but are definitely worth it in the long run.

I bought the later one from the physical store, got it for 20k and really happy with it.

 

Also, don't buy these online, you should really go and try these out first, each chair has wildly different comfort and support.

You'll have to feel the foam for the butt support, don't go on online reviews.

 

Many shops in Gurgaon, otherwise you can try Kirti Nagar as well, you might be able to get a better deal there.

Thanks. Will check FL store in Noida. Can't be bothered to go to GGN or Delhi for a chair. :fear1:

Yeah, but I wish this was simply in the settings like on a Windows computer.

 

Did you use your office Mac with a monitor? I essentially want to keep the lid closed and work on the monitor, but it won't let me do it unless I'm constantly plugged in.

 

I always see these youtube setups that have macbooks closed, connected to the monitor. Wondering if they have a workaround, or are they also always connected to power?

 

Try this app (dont personally use this): https://apps.apple.com/app/amphetamine/id937984704?mt=12

 

I use a dual monitor setup with my Mac but I dont work when unplugged. Mainly because intelliJ and our Jetty app server are power hogs and Mac tends to throttle when not plugged in.

 

I discharge manually overnight or when workload is light by keeping the lid semi closed.

Didnt know where to ask this so posting here. 

 

Is https://gamenation.in/ a legit website? It seems similar to gameloot with exactly same prices. Just wanted to know if anyone has had experience ordering from gamenation.

Yeah, legit.

IVG members have bought from the same.

You might also like to try Geeken. Idk if its better than FL, but I've been using this Geeken chair for 4-5 years now and its still like the day I bought it, very comfortable. 

 

They have a store in Sector-9 Noida, which should be somewhat close by.

Geeken was OOS for most demo chairs. Couldn't try much. 

Also looked at Featherlite. Liked this one: https://delhi.featherlitestore.com/product/optima-high-back-mesh-chair/ but it's SO f**king EXPENSIVE. 

27k after 10% discount. 

Too expensive, man. 

Also tried Helix and others. Not so great tbh.

You won't get anything decent for less than 20k. I tried everywhere. Demand & supply has completely messed up the prices otherwise I remember these going for 15k pre-pandemic.

Any good desk recommendations? I am planning to get one in a few weeks. Main use will be for work and study. Plan to keep one laptop, 1 monitor, 1 keyboard and 1 mouse on it. Plus a desk lamp. I'd prefer to keep wires out of the way so anything that has a place under the table for the charger and wires will be great.

I want to buy the Mx Master 3 for work use but the problem is that my corporate laptop has more restrictions than Alcatraz and hence not possible to install Logitech's software on it. Will have to plead to IT security otherwise.

 

So wanted to know if the changes made on the software such as DPI speed, macros and button actions are stored in the mouse's memory or the software completely handles that side?

Because if it's the former then I can just configure the mouse on my personal machine and use it on my work laptop.

 

Please let me know if anyone has any idea.

I haven't made any DPI changes, but somr default button behavior gets stored on the mouse (for example, clicking scroll wheel to open tabs in a new window), while some are software driven (like clicking middle button to close current tab). 

I've the same problem - work laptop with insane restrictions - but still the mouse ergonomics are worth it.

Where do you plan to keep cpu if below then you can use the old design woodish computer table should be available in most shops.

Why do you have to use office laptop? I heard this from some companies makes life more difficult

No desktop. Only a laptop with an external monitor.
