    Post Inverter question

    I have an inverter from Wal mart that is rated at 110v and 150 watts with up to 300 watt power surge, now will this be sufficent to power my comp? I tried it, it booted fine but some people say to use a 300w inverter, so I just need some feedback. Also on the back of the box it says it will power a laptop, desktop, or tv&vcr... Thanks

    HEAPS!
    Most PC's (just the tower and no monitor) won't draw more than 40W. A 300W inverter is a total overkill and very inefficent.
