How do they hold up? I only plan on putting a 24" LED monitor, a laptop, and some books on it.

clearly it's going to collapse since as a desk it was not meant to hold lightweight items
Why are you always smiling?

I thought it was going to be okay until I realized that someday he might put a coffee mug on it. Then the engineering model I'd formed in my head completely collapsed.

Yeah they are extremely durable, just don't drop a bowling ball on it from ten feet in the air and you will be fine. I've only seen or heard of one person having their desk shatter . . .it was horrible. I can't remember what they dropped on it to break it, but they had several hundred pounds worth of stuff sitting on it at the time, then dropped something on it on accident

I used to work in a glass fabrication plant as a furnace operator who tempered glass through a large oven. A little known fact: you can essentially take a hammer to the middle of a thicker tempered (5/8"s or so) and it won't break. What a lot of people don't know, is that the corners are the weak point. If the corners are exposed you run the risk of blowing it up completely with very little force if you hit them in the right way.

Ummmm do you mean something like this? http://salestores.com/stores/images/images_747/RTA3802.jpg

If so, then yes, I have that desk (but in black color) and I have 2 monitors, my keyboard, mouse, speakers, AND my Fractal Design Define R4 case on top of it. (I used to have it on the floor) but wanted to see mah glass window.

Tempered glass is crazy when it breaks. People say "oh it barely ever breaks" but experience tells me differently. I do understand the appeal, some of those desks are pretty cool lookin'.

It does break, into safer little popcorn pieces rather than large ragged death shards as seen with raw glass.

So I suddenly became interested in tempered glass instead of sleeping
