    You're not paying high prices for the parts. You're paying for the labor and system integration plus support. I recently priced a System76 and the difference between buying the parts and assembling myself, and paying System76 to do it for you is roughly what it would cost to pay me to assemble a system for a client at going labor rates in this area for skilled work.

    The only reason I haven't bought a system from them is because they didn't have the options I was particularly looking for in a desktop. If I were cool with their selections I'd have bought one and saved myself the headache of integration, and screwing with RMAs should the memory or motherboard be bad (the two things I've found most likely to be DOA in self builds).

    For sure, I'd pay $300 today if I could buy just the case. Looks amazing, way better than the tempered glass & carnival lights of the "gamer" cases. I wonder if they're planning a mini ITX version?

    InWin showed off a line of PC cases with various wood trims at Computex back in 2017.

    Today you can get their 301 or A1 with wood trim, but not as much coverage as the System76 case.

    It does add a sense of elegance to the case if the wood is sanded and stained properly. Depending on the type wood it will add weight too.

    Phoronix: System76 Expands Their Lineup Of Hand-Built Thelio Computer Cases

    In our many benchmarks of the System76 Thelio Major over the past month (and more on the way!) with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, besides the shear power of that 64-core / 128-thread processor, many are quick to comment on the pictures of the System76 chassis that they manufacturer in-house. This week the company is expanding their line-up of System76 Thelio cases...
