8. Is custom always more expensive?
No, not necessarily - Especially if you are seeking something with special applications or a special look.
It's a judgement call you have to make based on the life expectancy of your needs. If you are going to use something for ten years and it costs a hundred dollars more, what is $10 per year if it affects your productivity? If you don't want to settle for the standard stuff and can't afford custom, consider used. It costs less, but more important, its resale value after you use it is much closer to what you paid than if you bought new.
