The ASUS Google Meet lineup will be available in 28 countries starting next month. Prices start at £1650 ($2,022) for the Starter Kit and go up to £1,970 ($2,415) for the Small/Medium room kit. The Large room kit will cost £1,700 ($2,084). While the Starter and Small/Medium room kits are meant for 8 people, the Large room kit is designed for up to 20 people.
