InWin’s Signature Yǒng: A $4000 PC Case Designed by Customersby Anton Shilov on June 4, 2019 2:00 PM EST

There are many expensive highly-customizable PC cases on the market these days, but for some people even the fanciest chassis is not enough. For customers looking for something completely exclusive, InWin introduced its Signature Yǒng: a PC case that users can design themselves and have it 3D printed and processed by Inwin.
Designed after butterfly pupation processes and various organic forms, InWin’s Yǒng is a full-tower E-ATX open-air chassis compatible with a variety of motherboards, graphics cards and cooling systems. The case still has a metallic carcass for installing PC components as well as a metallic stand. That carcass has USB and audio connectors, everything you expect from a normal desktop.
To get a Yǒng, users will have to go to InWin’s website, choose their concept, customize it however they want and then the company will produce it and ship it to them. Production process includes 13 steps: InWin 3D prints the form, then it polishes it, paints it, glazes it, paints again, polishes again (not necessarily in the exact order though). In fact, the process looks similar to that used to paint premium cars, only InWin’s workers do loads of things manually.
Each Yǒng has its own unique number and since users can customize it above and beyond, each Yǒng chassis is exclusive. That uniqueness will come at a price. Each Yǒng from InWin will cost around $4,000. Meanwhile, the Signature Yǒng will not be InWin’s most expensive chassis as it will still sit below last year’s Z-Tower Silver that comes at a price of $5,500.

Opencg - Tuesday, June 4, 2019 - linkits a fair price for a fair product. a little out of your budget tho i see
Calin - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkIt's a combination of "one born every day" and "make it, and they will come" - the quantity of one or another varies by the individual.
As a computer case, it's terrifyingly expensive. On the other hand, as the "crown jewels" of a man cave, it might even make sense.
sonny73n - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkFair price for a fair product for idiots. Yea I’m talking about you. You and your money will be soon parted. FYI I can buy a good 3D printer for that amount.
Opencg - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linki could buy one of these every day for the rest of my life. oh and yeah give that $4000 3d printer a shot at making this. tell me how it goes
PeachNCream - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkPlease don't do it. No matter how bad things seem, there are other solutions aside from taking your own life tomorrow. Money might be tight, but I want you to reconsider your choice before you go through with it.
PS - I can exaggerate my net worth and income as well and no one will know the truth because it's the Internet! Don't worry, your mediocre middle class salary and mountain of debt will just be our little secret. *wink*
Opencg - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkthe fact that you dont believe me is only your insecurity manifesting as false logic
PeachNCream - Thursday, June 6, 2019 - linkThe fact that you felt compelled to respond says so much more than the content of the response.
V900 - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkThe thing is, for 4000$ you’d expect a case that isn’t hideous.
Actually, I take that back... For 4000$ you’d expect a top of the line 3D printer, top of the line case and a reasonably priced good bottle of scotch.
PeachNCream - Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - linkThere are so many things I could do with a bottle of scotch tape. It's not quite duct tape, but it could still unite the world at that sort of quantity.
