What I hate about it is that several cases I like have non-window/modded
variants that the local stores won't sell.

For example, there is a Lian-Li aluminum case I like, but the local
stores only carry the windowed-version.  It's $50 more than the plain
vanilla aluminum case.


I also don't like how the parts they sell are all for making things

Why not sell cheap drive bays, JBODs, and useful stuff so that "modding"
can add real capability to a machine?

It's just sad that a damn SCSI cable costs three times as much as a
should-be-more-expensive cold cathode.
