Laminate floor with island- over or under?

I'm scoping out buying an Armstrong Laminate floor for kitchen- Base cabinets are in already- We are installing a kitchen island with a 60" x 39" granite counter on the island. In reading the specs for the Laminate floor- it suggests if your island is over 250lbs- not to install the island directly on the floor- So I'm guessing my only option is to install the island now onto the subfloor and tile around it- Anyone else have any thoughts? My guess is the weight of the granite would crack the floor?

Don't put the laminate under the island, it needs to move and and the island will prevent that.

Laminate is the last thing I would put in a kitchen. You mentioned "tile" as an option. Now that's good.

Just re-reading now and you're talking about granite countertops; laminate doesn't sound upscale enough for your kitchen.
