If you had a 6400 and a Cyber 73 sitting side-by-side, stripped of their
"skins", it would be difficult for the average person to tell the

CDC management went a bit bonkers, re-christening old hardware with the
"Cyber" tag.  In particular, I observed that the STAR-100 was re-dubbed
the "Cyber 200" almost at the end of its product life.  I'm not aware of
a 100 ever bearing the "CYBER" nameplate.

But at bitsavers, that's where you have to look--the "Cyber"
subdirectory--even though the 200 and its ilk had nothing in common with
the other machines dubbed "Cyber".
