My first guess would have been an IBM PCjr because it has the only
cartridge version of Lotus I've ever heard of. But Wordstar was definitely
disk-based for the PCjr, in fact it had it's own version, Wordstarjr.
Microsoft Multiplan came on cartridge for the TI99/4A, but I've never heard
of the others being on cartridge format for that system.

What are the dimensions of the cartridges and how many pins? Do the labels
looks commercially viable, or could they be test/demo/proto labels?
