The A1000 also had a built-in RF modulator, which was also removed on the A500. Without a modulator, you don't need the typical...

The ST also has an advantage in its cheap monochrome high resolution screen with a steady 72 Hz refresh rate. Perfect for a sequencer and without any annoying 15 kHz squeal of a (more expensive) 1084.
