In 1987 (according to the internet):
The Atari ST was the cheap option, the Amiga 500 was the highest cost that the market would bear.
The Acorn Archimedes was also launched around that time and was very capable, but it was more expensive & didn't make much of a dent in the UK.
If the X68000 had been launched in the west around the same price as the Amiga 500 then yeah it would have blown them away. I don't think that would have been possible.
commodore management didn't know what they should be doing. It's a miracle that the A500 and A1200 ever came to market. It appears they were too busy messing other things up at the time, so they left the engineers to get on with it.
