In Win's Transforming H-Tower PC Case Nearing Production, But It's Expensive

In Win has made a habit of launching radically designed computer cases at trade shows and then later selling those same cases to customers. These cases are typically limited production units with price tags that reflect how rare and unique they are. This year at Computex in Taipei, In Win blew the crowd away with the H-Tower's truly radical look. Even more outrageous is the way the case opens. It's as if it were from the Transformers movies.

Back in June we really didn't know much about when it would be available, nor did we know how much it would cost, though it was obviously going to be a pricey object. Today, In Win revealed some of these details.

The H-Tower will be an extremely limited product. In Win will be producing only 200 units for worldwide circulation, and they will be split into two versions. There will be 110 titanium edition cases and 90 ROG editions. The company said that 30 of each version are destined for Europe, and that 90 percent of them are already pre-ordered by distribution partners. The company did not say how the distribution of the remaining 140 H-Towers is split.

The fact that there are only 200 units is not the only reason you'll likely never see one outside a trade show. The company has stated the suggested price of the case, and it is astronomical: In Win's H-Tower has an expected MSRP of 2299 euro. Assuming a straight conversion to USD, this case will set you back $2,600.

    If you look closely in the video at 0:49 you can see the case teleport into the past and try to terminate Sarah Connor.

    Nope, just no.

    $2600, even if it does look cool, on a computer case is beyond insane, even if you're a heartless rich bastard that can afford it. Spend a couple hundred on a good case, use the rest to help those in need.

    Thanks for telling people how to spend their money. I'm sure you would fit right into a government office somewhere.

    and yet they have the worst customer service every in any company. Time warners cables customer service compaired to inwin is freakin platinum.

    I ordered a mouse pad from them. Order was places but never ship out. I sent multiple e-mails. Decided to cancel my order.
    Forget how many times I hit the cancel button and it didn't go through.

    Got an e-mail 2 months later saying... we are sorry for not responding. We have been busy. Do you still want the mouse pad.

    There products are nice and looks stellar. But everything begins and end with customer service. I will never give them once sent of my hard earned money. Ever!!!! and I suggest everyone else do the same. Till they understand that it is customers that make there business successful they do not deserve a single penny from anyone.

    I'd pay AU$250 for it which I think is about US$160 right now.
    That’s if I was interested in a case that has no sound proofing and annoying lights projecting out of every orifice.
    Think Ill just stick with my Antec P182 instead.

    Anyone is entitled to their own opinion and he is mostly right. It does looks cool and all but in the end is just an useless computer case.

    If I was so inclined, which I'm not, I or one of you could build something similar for about five hundred bucks, or less. Personally, I think I'd rather use five one hundred dollars bills to purchase snipe hunting gear than I would to buy that case.

    But yeah $2600 for a case is beyond insane.

    Buying a case like that makes as much sense as inviting Charles Manson and company to your house for dinner on August 9th.
