Take a look at the inverter that's on Woot.com (http://www.woot.com/) today. 300 watts for $20. Is that enough to power a laptop?

What is the amp requirements of your laptop?

Watts = Amps x Volts

Sometimes the cheap inverters do ugly waveforms. Your laptop may, or may not care.

It should work fine. Between the computer power adapter and the battery, the noisy chopped AC signal shouldn't matter. The cheap inverter I'm using works great.

I ordered it. It's cheap, so what the hell.

I have a cheep $35 from wallmart. 3 years old now. Bought it for a trip to NewZealand so I could recharge my camera batteries in a rental rv. The trip before I kept running out of battery and would have to find a plug while stopping for gas or a cup of coffee. Never tried the laptop. Charged camera batteries great. One of the better $35 I've spent.
