Plus a Terminator's skull could be a pretty solid chunk of metal since it doesn't need to contain much else, might even be more effective armour on the skull than the chest since the chest needs to devote a lot of space to the powerpack and arm and waist actuators. You see when John takes out T-101's CPU in T2 that it's buried right down in there and the skull is otherwise more or less solid.
There would be no point recovering the head of a "veteran" terminator for the CPU, as it is covered in T2 that when the Terminators are in the field they have their learning switched to "off" (John turns it on). There would be no difference between a Terminator that had combat experience and one that didn't as they do not actually learn anything from it. If we want to come up with a fan-wank explanation for why the CPU is in the head, maybe we can also say that it needs to be away from the powerpack for EM or radiation reasons or something.

And they could be doing the whole Cylon thing and being connected to a network so all bots know where the others are

No, read-only is when they're "sent out alone" (I think that might only be said in the director's cut) not whenever they're in the field. Like Sarah says, it's because Skynet doesn't want lone Terminators contemplating whether the puny humans need to be kill'd.

Hey kids, all aboard the Hype Train! *choo-choo*

My only gripe with this film is that Ramin Djawadi isn't returning to compose the score (thanks to his work on Game of Thrones, he's become one of my favorite composers).
