    Dear all,

    The above has been bothering me again recently.

    I remember when I was at school and T2 just came out with all the video games etc. And nearly in evey instance, reviewers and packingaging referred to Arnies cyborg as the T-800.

    IS the CS-101 model a T800? I can't recall anywhere in either film where the 101 CYBORG is called a T800.

    In the first Terminator Reese says something about the 600 series were easy to spot nothing about 800?

    Anyone heard of this or have I imagined it?

    Cheers.

    Dave.

    Think of it as a car. The model is Ford but the series is Escort.

    Cyberdynes System model 101 is the model.
    T-800 is the series.

    The T-600 was the previous series which had rubber skin which is partly why they were a bit pants. Check out the scene in the car park just after Reese gets Sarah. All is explained.
