Who made the case? My wife and I might want to start carrying them.
We're a few weeks away from launching an "all things HTPC" store selling

And there in lies the rub. What is and is not a lot of money varies
from person to person. There are a wide variety of folks building /
using MythTV, the guys hooking their boxes up to 2k+ TVs and 2k home
sound systems don't mind paying for the best.
Though it is kinda nuts that the case is the single most expensive
component of my HTPC.
