I like buying fancy shiz and all but I don't understand how this aluminium case is almost as much as the keyboard itself.

Compare it to the CTRL High-Profile and it starts adding up:
  • CTRL HP - $250
  • CTRL HP Barebones - $200 (ergo, switches + caps are worth $50 -- makes sense)
  • CTRL HP Case - $145 (or "Barebones" without a PCB and diffuser, worth $45 and $10, respectively)
The case is just the expensive part of the build.

Well thanks for the breakdown my fren, still blows my mind you would think the pcb would be the most pricey but hey what do I know (:

The solid cnc aluminum cases are what makes these keyboards expensive, and sturdy/well made. If the ALT or CNTRL came in plastic cases they would probably be $90 for an ALT and $130 for a CNTRL. I just purchased an e-white 60% Aluminium case (smaller than both CNTRL and ALT) and it was $150 for the case alone, nothing else.
