if there is an Apple logo on every wheel then its worth the asking price.

would you say the same thing to someone spending $100 a piece on fancy casters for a caselabs?

Yes. Even those small industrial casters designed to roll smoothly under loads up to 600 pounds each are like $20 each...

seems you haven't spent much time on castercity.com. I think you'd be quite surprised with the cost of their fancy stuff. hell, even some of the less than 1T industrial stuff is 100 a piece.

not trying to justify it, as much as point out its not as silly as it seems in the grand scheme of caster things.

still - apple being apple, so easy to fire shots

Yes, and they might be even more deserving of that broken foot.

well sure if you spec em crazy enough, they have plenty that are already way overrated for even the biggest of caselabs cases well under $50. And their prices don't seem especially great compared to what I'm used to seeing.

So yes, paying $100 each for casters for a freaking case is completely mad unless you're filling your case with solid lead.

i'm a little blown away with their prices too.

the exact same casters that came on my new cart are like $22 a piece by their reckoning.

Just because someone spends +$1400 extra on PC, doesn't make cooler than mine.

yeah I didn't really mean it like that. Just trying to reference the pinnacle of something within the niche.

I was a case whore until I got my STH10. My only regret is not getting a double wide instead. A good lesson living in the moment.

n it most definitely means it cools better than most side effect of filling every possible slot available with a radiators & AP15s
