You guys with glass desks, do you maintain dust by cleaning it often? I ask because I have laminate flooring and have explored glass desk ideas but can't help but imagine the leathering of dust on glass will cause me to go insane!

I have a new monitor from last week :p

2 questions what size are both of those monitors and what model is that dell monitor?
It gets dusty just a lil bit but nothing too noticeable. It usually takes a quick wipe down every other day to keep it clean.

I had a glass desk. Dust was as bad as any other piece of furnature, except you could just see it easier. The real issue was scratches. One year after having it, it was sort of ruined :/

I've not owned a glass desk myself but I've used desks that are glass and they can scratch quite easily. I don't think I'd ever buy one unless I had practically covered the entire surface with some kind of mat like almost a table cloth. And that kind of defeats the purpose in the first place. I'll stick to wood.

It doesn't matter if it is glass, metal, or wood. they all still get dust on them. I know that everyone hate dust on their furniture.

There are desk mats available at the store... but desk mats can get dust on them..

You can put desk mat on the glass desk so you wouldn't worry about the scratch marks on it.

Damn - I'd love one of those for my two HP MicroServers, but funding is a little tight at the moment.
