I would pay maybe up to £50-£60 for one of these said cases, how much do you think they would take to make?
I'm sure it would be less than that.
The actual cost of making a single case is not that bad, but the tooling costs for the molds are prohibitive in this case. Can be tens of thousands. Thus you need to crank out a lot of these to get them down to £60.

I'm not sure how many are willing to plonk down that much though.. At least around here (Finland), people are quite thrifty regarding their old computers.
