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.

$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.
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.
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.
But yeah $2600 for a case is beyond insane.
