My System Specs

Default

Low production runs can add to the cost, but it's mostly materials and fit/finish.

That said... a person could ask the same thing about automobiles.... why does a premier retail market automobile cost 3X what a loaded base model costs? They've all got 4 wheels and a motor don't they? CD player + speakers? Air Conditioning? Power windows? Auto tranny? etc....?

Quite frankly, you can't compare the fit/finish of a high end case with something in the sub $100 range.
