My System Specs

Default

Development/ material cost/ lower volume production/ and the price premium associated with that segment of the market. While I would never spend that kind of money on a case, its just like a high end version of anything. Usually everything is priced along an exponential curve (you get a decent return on increasing costs until a point where the curve goes vertical...then you pay a lot more for very little gain).

Do you drive a Toyota Yaris, or a Kia Rio? Why buy a more expensive car then that...it still gets you from point A to point B (not being a jerk with this statement, just pushing the point). I would argue that for a case the point of diminishing returns is somewhere around the $100 mark, and for cars around the $30,000 mark (new cars of course).
