Taking a break from our usual Linux hardware coverage and performance benchmarking this weekend is a look at the Sumo Emperor, a comfortable basis for lounging or working from a laptop.

Our friends over at Sumo Lounge sent over the Emperor to check out at Phoronix, the latest product in their high-end beanbag family. Sumo Lounge continues to cater to gamers and computer enthusiasts, which is where Phoronix comes in to play. The Sumo Emperor measures in with a 55-inch diameter and 25-inch height to easily accommodate one or two people whether it's for relaxing while watching a movie, working from a laptop, gaming in your living room, or engaging in other activities.

In the past on Phoronix have been reviews on the Sumo Lounge Omni and Sumo Lounge Titan bean bag chairs, both of which turned out to be great products.

Sumo's products aren't your run-of-the-mill bean bag but are composed out of a very nice fill that is long-lasting and retains its comfort -- even the two-year-old Sumo Titan is still within my office and very comfortable.

In terms of the beanbag's arrival, the 55 x 25 inch chair was shipped via FedEx and was compressed down to a 34 x 20 x 20 inch box and the weight on the shipment was 47 lbs (21 kg). Once removing the Emperor from its box and bag, it was quick to regain its proper shape and size.
