As you already said, nostalgia really plays a big part here, and people are ready to pay good money for nostalgia.
And there are people who really love this form factor, me included (although, I don't like this particular case). Not everyone are able to have two (or more) computers at their house, so this is a nice solution for the people who want a machine that looks retro but which you can still use for everyday tasks.
Or maybe some people are heavily into emulation, and want a case to give them that extra fuzzy feeling?
These are maybe not reasons for you to get one, but I understand why some people might buy this case.
