I personally bought one last year. I look at it this way. I could battle the company to get me one, however, I would probably loose that battle after much grief and anguish. I stop at starbucks every day for a Venti Cappuccino for a bit over $5 CAD without even thinking about it. I spend approximately 2000 hrs at the office per year. I ended up getting a VariDesk Pro (I HIGHLY recommend it) but there are other players in the game too. Landed in the door was $700 CAD. So if I do the math. Thats about 35 cents per hour, or $2.80/per day. One half of my coffee addiction (which probably isnt near as healthy) So why will I spend the money without thinking for a the coffee but flinch at the desk? One of the better purchases I have made. I feel more energetic during the day, and my back doesnt get as sore. So the choice becomes, wait for the Co. to save my life, or take charge of my own health to counteract the coffee/day habit... Plus when I change jobs, I simply take it with me, the way I would take a picture on the wall.
