A miter saw would be much easier and generally faster.  You could use a circular saw as well, although if I went that route I'd probably take the time to make a cut off jig to speed things up.


Because of the wear layer, laminate flooring is very hard on saw blades.  I'm not impressed with Freud's Diablo blades but they're probably the best Home Depot offers.

You definitely need a carbide tip blade if the laminate is particle board backed. Particle board does in a conventional blade in only a couple cuts! Blades with carbide teeth, that are designated for miter saws , should give good results.
