Laminate options offer inexpensive retro look, durability.
Don't take the first bid for granted. Talking to a smaller contractor saved this homeowner money and landed him beautiful stone counters.
You may be a pro at picking kitchen countertops, but bathroom countertops are a whole new ballgame.
Artificial (quartz) is cheaper, more uniform, has fewer voids to collect dirt, and is almost as abrasion and chip resistant.
Granite is more expensive, stains and collects dirt a little easier as a rule, and is slighly more chip resistant as a rule.
For durability, I would not rate one over the other - barring a 250 lb guy hopping up on it and cracking it, either is likely to outlive you. Selection is typically based on appearance - quartz tends to be more uniform looking and does not always do a good job of simulating the veining and variations that natural stone has.
Now some of the man made stone counters rival the real granite and othe stones without the maintainence of stone. There are many of them out there and it is more a choice of looks than anything else. Corian is still a strong choice of tops today and one advantage is it can be repaired when scratched on site. If you don't mind the maintainence you can't beat the looks of real stone though unless you need a few pieces to make up the top as the graining may be hard to match up. I am impressed though at how realistic some of the man made products have become. It is more an issue of what brand are available in your area. Most all are made the same way with crushed stone and basically an epoxy binder used to make the sheets.

The seam along the longest counter was to be in line with the sink divider, but it was off to the left by 1/4”. The installers drilled the single faucet hole another 1/4” to the left, leaving a 1/2” mistake. My faucet base is thin enough that the hole could only be widened 1/16” as a corrective measure, so the faucet remains off center.
The fabricators attempted to make a

My bushes in the front yard were covered with silicone sealer when the crew left.
I brought these issues up with City Rock and they sent two guys out to address the edges. They improved but are still uneven. Can’t fix the faucet hole; bushes will have to recover on their own; no fix for the epoxy in front of the sink. In the mean time, while going back and forth with their front office about these issues, I was pestered by their finance person multiple times looking for a payment. At my suggestion of a discount for all the errors I was offered a measly $100 (2%) discount for all the mistakes. I was then presented with another invoice that did not include the discount.
I’m sure there are worse companies doing this, but overall the experience with these folks was uncoordinated and wrought with errors that a little bit of care would have prevented. So I am left living with their mistakes while they walk off with my money and probably will continue to make similar mistakes at other homes.

For those reasons, plus a deal I got through Angie's List, I went with
They did have to come back out a week after to re-caulk the sink as the caulk didn't dry (in over a day) before it got wet, and so wouldn't set up. I'm noticing some whitening of caulk next to the sink at the bottom of the backsplash as well, so I don't know if the caulk just wasn't a good bottle or what. I would recommend that if they don't cover it with some good painter's tape, that you do after it's been drying for a day, just to protect it from getting wet.
I left work early to meet the contractor. He called and said he needed to reschedule for the following day.
I left work early the next day to meet the contractor. He called FIVE minutes before he was scheduled to arrive saying he couldn't make it and he would call to reschedule.
It's been almost two weeks and I haven't heard from the company. I guess they don't need my business.
