Installing cabinets atop laminate flooring

I've heard two opposing viewpoints and am confused. If you do install cabinets first should you build up subfloor to height of flooring? This is new construction.

    Yup...stubborn people often have to deal with more problems down the road because they seem to refuse to accept the wisdom and common sense of experience.

    I prefer tile also, but this is my brother - in - laws. Can't seem to get him to make a move unless its his way!

    Keep in mind that laminates are considered disposable floors, and that after just a few years will look pretty sad...if these are installed UNDER the cabinets is is going to be a real bugger to replace them.
