Whenever I have one with fixed arm-rests they either get in the way of my elbow using a mouse, get in the way of my elbow when sketching, or they stop my chair from fitting under the desk, which makes me hunch over to reach my keyboard. I just move them around as needed now, depending on what I'm using my desk for.
If you do get one with fixed rests, then it's definitely worth looking to see if you can take them off without the chair falling apart as well, just in case they start to annoy you (lesson learnt! ).
Are you talking about adjustable armrests or no armrests at this point?
