are you talking about the Super Tourist
I don't know anything about welding, so if you're capable try it. I think your talking about the Topeak Super Tourist DX(?) with the second rail. I think the Topeak Super Tourist regular does not have that second rail. I guess before you put a laptop in it if you do weld; put something else in their with similar weight and see how it holds up for a couple of rides.
I do agree with you about the availability of the Super Tourist DX. A UK store could ship it to me but it would cost around $60-70 dollars if I remember correctly ($35-40 for the rack, and the rest in shipping charges, and thats with the Euro to Dollar conversion). I wonder if buying one with the Disc Mount would make any difference in handling or stability if you don't have disc brakes? It definetly would be a lot cheaper.
Good Luck figuring it out
