That's fair enough, and I will be the first person to admit the ST was nothing of a serious home computer and should have stuck to spreadsheets/sequencers/cross assembler type tools etc. Even for 3D solid polygon games the sound was always a trade-off not worth the 10% faster graphics of 3D games either so I still used my Amiga for those when I owned an ST and A1000 together.
To me the A1000 personally was elegant, and quiet and had nice touches like the keyboard going under the desk. The A3000 I also thought was quite striking and very Commodore with the horizontal slats they're famous for. It's more about effort that goes into the case designs, for Commodore it was a new thing since the PET died off and they did a nice job compared to the huge massive noisy IBM XT/AT machines of the mid 80s even though some people say the A1000 looks 'boring'.
