We rang SIA about our laptop last week (before it was mentioned on PIA) and they confirmed what Laura and Kris have said. The laptop isn't weighed and you can carry it on without it affecting your handluggage quota.
And make sure that the laptop battery is not fully discharged. Going out of Singapore, they made me switch my laptop on, presumably to ensure that it wasn't a bomb. However, with modern technology, I'm sure that my 3 year old laptop case could hold both! And talking of naive knee-jerk regulations (hey, politicians excel at those) - at Heathrow, they took away Cazzie's tweezers, then on the plane, issued us with some much more dangerous metal forks - so we had 2 weapons instead of 1!
