Best saw for laminate flooring?

I plan to use a 60t carbide blade, but I was wondering which type of saw is easiest to use for cutting laminate? My choices are Table or Circular? The planks are approx 8" wide. Thanks

Table is easier to use.

depending on the size of your job, a 10" chop saw is well worth it.. usually they are sold as miter saws. I have to flip the pieces, but that is easy, and it is much safer and more accurate for doing cross-cuts than either of your current choices, and much cleaner cutting than a saber saw. I use the later for cuts I cannot do any other way. I am lucky, I also have access to a bandsaw that I use for the long and shorts cuts that I can.. it cuts the laminate like butter. The beauty of laminate is that your cut side should almost always be covered by trim.
