Best buy of the decade

An interesting question in the Hardware 2.0 mailbag:

"What's the best thing you've bought over the past decade?"

Good question! Initially I was just going to pick some latest bit of kit that I bought, but I realized that a lot of new kit is only "best" for a short period of time - basically until something smaller, faster, or with greater capacity comes along.

I needed to think a little more and work the question a little longer. Then it struck me. The one "best" thing, out of everything that I've bought over the past decade, is ... *** drum roll please *** ...

My Aeron chair.

Sure, it wasn't cheap, but it's ultra-comfortable, still looks, feels and works like new, and should see me through the next decade.

What's been your best buy of the decade?
