Staples Desley Mesh Task Chair, Gray

So, recently I pulled the trigger on getting a new computer....which I'm sure I'll write about later, so I won't talk about it now.

But having done so, there was the problem of making room for a new computer. Since the new computer is to replace my current, it isn't so much space to put the new computer...but rather space to move the old computer to.

For a long time, I've thought about clearing a corner in the bedroom I use as a storeroom. Originally the plan was to locate a network laser printer to this space. It is very doubtful that I would have the juice to handle a laser printer in the living room, and probably definitely not when the the fuser fires up. Though one would hope that things have come forward to the point where it isn't as bad as the Xerox 4045 I once owned. I had snake power from another part of my house to run it, and it would still dim everything. I had already cleared networking an an outlet towards this possibility.

That probably won't happen in the near future now...

Anyways, I launched into plans to make the space happen....I had a printer stand that would free up with some work, that would go into this space....I would just use it as a computer stand in the new plan. But, it would need a chair. So, I did a quick online search....Amazon Prime was the usually first place. Though I had wish-listed some other options from Staples. But, I'm on a budget right now....so I went looking for less expensive options. First Amazon.com, and the Staples.com. I was looking for a mesh chair...nothing with a mesh seat in my current price range though. But, I noticed that the current Weekly Ad for Staples.com had a simple mesh task chair for $29.99 ($20 off).

Well, that's very cheap....since the plan doesn't have spending a lot of time at this computer, it should be more than adequate...otherwise I would want a chair with arm rests and a bit more adjust-ability.

The only hard part of the ordering process, was that staples.com kept apologizing for being down....

So, I spent the weekend working on clearing a spot for printer stand and a chair....as I went along, I decided to free up more and more space. If all goes well now, there will be a small computer desk going into the space as well. Considering something from Staples.com, and this week's Weekly Ad. I may yet do the network printer in this space, in fact I'm considering just moving my current printer (HP Photosmart 8450xi, which I am using networked)...since I'm probably going to need all the desk space with the new computer...and a pair of 23" wide-screen monitors.

Anyways, the chair arrived today...and I decided that before I had lunch I would set it up. Turned out to be really easy to put together...everything was included, along with extras. And, it was a lot better quality than I expected for the price. But, its still very basic. Though I wish I had gotten two. I could've finally replaced the chair that's falling apart in front of the computers in the other bedroom that's computers and clutter. Guess I'll have to keep an eye out....or stick with the plan to eventually get a much better chair in the living room and move that one.

So, wonder if I should get another chair mat or two...

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
