For those of you keeping up in the [H] Forum thread, they're discussing whether or not to make a production campaign with two (or more) versions of the case.

One version may be unpainted (cheaper), and the other will be all black (more expensive)

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.

I haven't kept up with the thread. Have they stated what full price is likely to be? I know they said 160-200 USD, just not sure if that's still correct.

It's looking closer to $200 before shipping,so $250 isn't far fetched, especially for international buyers.

I just read the last 2 pages of that thread. For a case like that, you're going to pay a premium for an exclusive product. When I first saw it come up during the crowd funding I was expecting to pay ~$300 anyway because I live in Australia. I don't mind paying extra for such a nice case.

Pretty as it is it's out of my league really ATM. If they were to make a steel and plastic version in China for $50/$70 or so....but that's out of the question and I'd rather it's stay a unicorn I can't ride yet.

This is the where we are assuming:
1) We get at least 300 orders
2) Necere finds a way to get front I/O made better & without a price increase / tooling
3) Lian Li doesn't increase price on us as result of material cost increase or factory strike
$160, Silver, silver anodized panels, unpainted & raw interior, black front I/O port
$170, Black, black anodized panels, unpainted & raw interior, black front I/O port
$180, Black, black anodized panels, black painted interior, black front I/O port
US Shipping via USPS $25 (include $200 insurance)
INT Shipping via USPS $65 (include $200 insurance for most* countries

Seems to me the $170 case is rather moot. $10 in savings isn't exactly worth it.The case would still be $205 shipped,and most people can live with that. That way they can easily put them up as NCase M1S and M1B,probably add the fan filters to ship with if it doesn't add much.
