You will not regret it. You can micro adjust everything. Get that back set up so that it just gently floats when you lean back. And the way they made it... no padding whatsoever, yet the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. Has to be in the design of the plastic mesh that supports/is the seat, and the design of the back support.
Another one that's great for long haul computer work, but not nearly as comfortable as the Embody, is the KneelSit
chair. Second only to the Embody in keeping your backside pain free for long periods of sitting at a computer.
