In order to get their specially designed parts, namely the custom "+/-" LED digits and the laser engraved keycaps one has to buy the complete kit for 500 Dollars. They are not sold separately and the basic kit (starting at 250$ and containing just standard parts which one can buy oneself for maybe 50$) does not contain them.
you can get the custom LED displays, PCB and keycaps for less at the kickstarter project "OPEN DSKY" (see the table under "Rewards"). I have not looked at the mechanical design yet, but it might be possible to fit a more powerful computer into the case.
