Correct...most of them don't. I didn't consider the price, when I bought it. I just thought it has good cooling, with the 140mm front intake.

Heres the one I got:
Newegg.com - AeroCool AeroEngineII-BBP Black 0.65mm SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

You can check my album, at the bottom of my sig, for more pics of the case.

Those huge fans, give a lot of airflow. Now I have 3 x 140mm fans. Front intake, rear exhaust, and one for either the side intake, or CPU cooler. And they're surprisingly very quiet.

Yea If i needed better cooling I would probably get one...I'm kind of sold on the Apollo though because newegg has a 20 bucks MIR with it and I think I will have my dad give me 20 bucks to help pay and tell him he can have the MIR when it comes heh

I personally like cases with windows. Yet some may have a different view on what's aesthetically pleasing.
