Mac was already on market so he (Jack) was aiming at Mac:
- 2,5x cheaper
- faster memory access
- more max. memory
- fast ASCI DMA port
- mono monitor: bigger screen, bigger resolution, better refresh rate
- colors
- full keyboard
...every aspect of original Mac was improved in ST.
I firmly believe that Mac was primary role model when ST was designed and not Amiga (which was far from finished computer).
