Hi Plan Swiss.
When are you traveling? It makes a difference in the high Alps. Do you plan any hiking?
Although there are some quite scenic mountains near Lake Geneva (see Montreux/Rochers de Naye):
I'd probably tend to fly into Zürich. You are closer to a wider range of Alps, even though Zürich is not close to the Alps itself.
Of course, as Lucas noted, figure out where you want to go, and then plan from there. There is excellent train service and Switzerland is only a large country when you compare it to Singapore ;-) . And, even the Swiss version of a modest hill is noticeable by Singapore standards. ;-)
There are many useful maps, but I like this one for the perspective on the topography, and very clear presentation of trains and other transport once you zoom in to zoom level 32.
You'll note that Geneva is sort of at the tail end of the country, while Zürich has a more central location.
