We've enjoyed our Lafer recliner. Perfect for a laptop, sleeping, modern lines.

Well, updating this, I finally got a decent Eames Lounge knockoff for a total of $40, and it works pretty well as a laptop chair, actually. It would be nice to have a swing-around lap desk to put the computer on, so maybe I'll look for one, but for now, I'm lounging and typing and it's very comfortable. The armrest works decently as a mousepad but when I un-recline it falls off.
