From all the chairs I have sat in, the Aeron is by far the best. IMHO.
I got to sit in my bosses while he was away for a couple weeks last
fall. I loved it.
But I have sat in Aeron demonstrator chairs, and hated them. I realized
that they have different ratings depending on your size and weight. My
boss is similar enough to me that his chair was great (it was a D). The
demo was a B which is just not designed for my body size.
I would buy one tomorrow if I had the money. After all, my ass is in it
8-10 hours a day.
And the Aeron is mostly metal. The frame is entirely metal, but the mesh
is some composite plastic (IIRC).
