Are you a quickly growing business with employees all over the nation or even the world? Do you have a hard time setting up meetings between these employees separated by land and sea? If so, Google’s new hardware might just be what they need.
Google announced this afternoon that it’s working with Asus to create what it calls the Chromebox for meetings. The Chromebox itself is just a tiny desktop PC that runs Google’s proprietary Chrome OS. The “for meetings” part means that it comes equipped with all you need to host video conference calls between your office and another halfway around the world.
Here’s what Google says you’ll get with the Chromebox for meetings:
Google says the Asus Chromebox for meetings is available today in the U.S. for $999. For that price, you’ll get the Chromebox, all the accessories and the first year’s management and support. After that, management and support will cost $250 a year.
If Asus isn’t your thing, Google says Chromeboxes from HP and Dell will be available in the coming months. The Chromebox for meetings will launch in more countries later this year, including Australia, Canada, France, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the U.K.
