There are efforts underway to produce a laptop bag that would obviate the need to take laptops out of their cases for Xray inspection as is the current norm in the USA. This would speed up processing at TSA checkpoints.

Security at LHR asks you to leave laptops in the bags. They have various signs with this instruction. They also have signs instructing you to remove your shoes as well though.

At LHR and other BAA airports, a lot of money has been invested in new x-ray machines, enabling laptops to stay in bags. Been like this for a couple of months now

does that 'stay in the bag' rule apply if the laptop is in a camera bag rather than a dedicated laptop bag.

The laptop procedures vary all over the place as do the rules on shoes... there are foreign stations with flights to the USA that do not require either laptops or shoes to be inspected separately.
