Air China Carry On Rules?

Hi, I'm flying Air China from Beijing to Shanghai in economy with my 6 year old son. I've read that you can only take on 1 carry on that has to way less than 11 lbs? Is this policy strictly enforced? I had planned to gate check a small suitcase and carry on my backpack which will weigh far more than 11 pounds with my electronics in it (computer, etc).

Not in the slightest. As long as it can fit in an overhead locker, it's fine.

I was struggling to carry all my carry-on with my two hands PEK-SYD and no problems in economy. They just took my large backpack and put it at the back.
