Laminates are getting a real bumb rap in my area, with our constant shifting foundations, the laminates are not being flexible enough to stand up. Much of the problems are due to inferior installers.
I will go on the line and state this: a stable foundation with a qualified installation, and proper space all around the base boards for flexing, you will be OK.
Just beware and do your homework and if you get it installed, make sure they are good and have a warranty.
