Or can we start now? Perhaps we all need to plunk down $30K on a personal Cisco TelePresence unit? (Hey, if you really are a virtual worker, you won’t need to buy that car for getting to the office.) This could be the new face of the leasing business, and a new line of business for Cisco: monthly lease payments on a Cisco TelePresence unit from Cisco Finance.
