Does the 8300 have a Pci slot as well? some seem to mention it and others don't

I have a bout 4 machines to set up and may just use the Parallel port for one of them so would be good to have all options

The USDT does not have a parallel port, the SFF model does(header)
The USDT has no PCIE slot (well it does have a MiniPCIE slot for a wireless card) The SFF has 3 low profile PCIE slots and one low profile PCI slot

So is the 8000 not a good one to use then?

There is a chance that I will want to use Gscreen or one of the touch screen options.

Am I better just getting a newer J1900 or mini itx with i3/i5?

A 8300 (the most common one with a I5/3570) is nearly 3 times as fast as a J1900
This may not matter unless you have very dense backplots you need to see

A new I5 would be as fast or faster but cost a lot more (the motherboard alone would
cost as much as a complete Elite 8300 =~ $80 with shipping) The down side of a used
computer is that there's no warranty, so if it dies, you are out of luck (though parts are
very cheap for corporate desktops)
