Help with laminate flooring

Found 6th Feb 2009
Hoping to grab a bit of advice on laminate or solid wood flooring. I am wanting to renew the carpet in our living room with oak laminate or solid oak.wood, and am wanting it to last and not chip, but think the 2nd option would be too expensive. There seems to be different kinds of laminates, which are the best type and which are the worst? What is 3 strip solid oak flooring?

Is it actually solid wood.
Could anybody post any links for good quality at a good price.
Thank's in advance.

a lot depends on a number of things k , first who would be fitting it? if its a diy job id go for the laminate if its a pro i'd have solid , the only draw back to solid is you get small dents or bruising of th wood if anyone walks on with high heels or kids with toys banging it, the positive of it being solid is you can sand it down and re finish it, ps im a carpenterm if you wont any advice on fitting etc just post on here mate .

Thank's for the info Yonder, it is a diy job, I have fitted laminate in kitchen and the moisture resistant tile effect in the bathroom no probs but was wondering if you could advise any for a lounge which has a hallway where people may walk in with their shoes on. I am wanting something where the top layer will not peel off.:thumbsup:
