Lotus 1-2-3 Cart version rare?

I picked this one up recently. It has the two carts and some floppies, also.

It's fairly common. But that doesn't make it less interesting; it is really funny (to me) that you jam two carts into the system and it still requires a floppy drive to load more program binaries, all to shoehorn it into a 128KB system.
You're all insane and trying to steal my magic bag!

Well, to be fair the majority of the spreadsheet code is on the two cartridges. The floppies have auxiliary programs, like PrintGraph ..

It wasn't a particularly rare set of cartridges. And trying to stuff a major, first rate productivity program into that packaging was a noble effort. :D

Yeah, it definitely gets props for getting it working. Someday when I have loads of free time, I'd like to disassemble the ROMs to see what program code and data are inside them.

This is definitely on my To-Do list also!
