Depends.

They are more stable and less susceptible to humidity and and stuff like that. If they contain different woods they can add a new dimension of tone, and look really awesome.

The manufacturers have the ability to use less wood when making a multi piece neck since it can be fitted together instead of cut and carved form one solid chunk of wood.The way the laminates run in the the neck also helps to prevent warping,or so I've been told.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

This is exactly it. They'll also naturally dampen the response of your guitar, effectively making your tone muddier.

Generally speaking they're not a good idea unless the neck is very thin and it is going to often be set up for different tunings, especially with unusually thick strings.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

From the little searching I did it seems theres no real scientific fact in regards to the tone difference of laminates v 1 piece. There were lots of opinions. The acoustic guys seems to like em. And seem to be popular with 12 strings due to the extra strength. Most wont notice any real tone difference between laminate and 1 piece, except we havent heard from eric johnson on the subject yet. This might end up like the bolt/set/neck thru debate. Or the flat/quarter sawn debate. With the various sides debating their opinions to the bitter end with no real facts to justify any 1 theory. I have a warmoth 5 piece mahogany neck on a guitar, plays good stays in tune, but it would be hard to compare to my other mahogany necked guitar as its a set neck LP.

They are stronger than other necks.

I'd say this may be close to correct.

I have an Ibanez RGR421EXFM with a 5 piece maple neck and it sounds muddy to an extent (not in a bad way for me though, the tone is perfect for what I want, love it).
Although this may be mostly or all because of the V8 and V7 pickups which are muddy themselves.

When I read this comment I was like "sweeeeet" cos the neck is thin for most guitars (quite thick for an Ibanez however), I change tunings a lot with it and I use quite heavy strings lol.
