    How can you possibly sit so closely to the monitor.

    For me a good desk needs much more "depth" so the monitor is at an acceptable distance.

    Do you really sit so closely to the monitor?

Also I tend to have a pencil somewhere within reach at all times, usually in my pocket, but don't always have a notebook, so I'll just quick close my laptop lid part way and jot the note down there. Erases perfectly fine as well, doesn't streak or rub off the paint / coating at all (not yet anyway)

    KWrite/Kate, or LibreOffice Writer. I was using KJots for a while but I tended to require some of the more advanced formatting that LO:W allowed.

    To avoid this I use a small rubber pad, then a house brick, then my Audioengine 2 speakers. The speakers have a rubber base anyway. The result is the speakers sit at about 7cm above the glass on a firm base. I have always preferred to lift my speakers up a bit on any type of desk. Audioengine sell speaker stands, but they cost more than recycled bricks. I have the same desks, but sold under a different name. I guess they all come out of the same Chinese factory.

    My laser mouse works well on glass....

    I didn't say it didn't. I said that they don't interfere with your shins because they are further back.

    You will likely also need a good mouse pad -- the glass top is not optical mouse-friendly

    I'm sitting in front of one of these (black) right now.

    It is amazing value for the money, and very handsome, but there are small issues that do show that you get what you pay for.
