I live in Chicago on the top floor of a 4 unit condo building built in 1893 and rehabbed in 2006. The windows are aluminum and lack any sort of energy efficiency.

I'm looking to replace the windows and an in-swing french doors. Below are 3-different quotes. I'm leaning toward the Inline product because of price and what I've read here and elsewhere. Would I be making a mistake? What would you all do? I've read previous posts and have respected the insights of folks here. I plan to keep my condo for a long time, even if I move in the near term.
