If you just strap it on the top of the rack, it'll get top heavy and yeah, handle weird. If it's low, in a pannier it'll feel better. I had a similar experience with a 14" laptop as well as after strapping a crate to my rear rack so I can do more grocery shopping by bike. With the crate loaded the bike is much harder to control, even if I put the heaviest items in the panniers.

Although, most panniers will fit 12" laptop at most.
