The A2088 was an add-in option. Back in the day, only one of my A2000-owning
friends had a bridgecard. I was given a demo, and it was rather clunky. The
main compelling feature of the A2000 was the built-in hard disk.
Commodore UK also released the A1500 which was an A2000 without hard disk but
with an extra floppy drive, i.e. the same spec as a typical A500 gaming rig. It
apparently flew off the shelves, although I'm not sure why given it cost
somewhat more than the A500 equivalent.
