You talking about fastening the laminate flooring or fastening the underlayment plywood, Garret? If it for the underlayment, you can generally use either screws or nails of the correct variety. I know some underlayment materials are installed using staples, but that's generally up to the manufacturer of the floor covering.

My opinion; worth price charged.

See #2, then. I favor screws for anything in a subfloor construction.
