Bathroom vanity tops and MDF bathroom vanities.

My 88, soon to be 89, year old mother has been living with me for the past 2 years. I'm in the process of remodeling the bathroom that she uses.

This actually wasn't a planned remodel. I was just supposed to be replacing the leaking and always running toilet and then it just kinda snowballed from there. You know one of those if I'm replacing this, I might as well go ahead and do this and if I'm doing item #2, I might as well go ahead and do item #3, etc. Yes, I know this is not how one should do a remodel but like I said, it wasn't my intentions to do a full remodel.

Anywho, the bathroom vanity that I will be installing is made of MDF. My question is with regard to vanity tops. I know in the kitchen, it's not recommended to put granite over MDF. Does that also apply in the bathroom? My concern is can the cabinet carry the weight of actual stone. I'm not necessarily interested in granite but just exploring all options for vanity tops.

This is the vanity that I will be using

I almost forgot to add that it's a RTA vanity if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
