Reading the discussion, I think the easiest thing to do is have a preorder of Ncase M1B and Ncase M1S. The M1B being more expensive, should get the first preorder run. If it reaches 500 well and good,if not Silver the balance to 500 as a cheaper preorder.
I'm yet to read through that thread well,but I'd like to think actually knowing how many people are willing to put up the full amount for the case is important. Might actually end up being quite the number,probably dropping production cost and making shipping cheaper.
Good things come to those who wait.
