Sure. Just as long as the inverter doesn't die. I'd test it on a lamp or something first.

Best solution

Should be. The laptop power bricks are pretty rugged. They'll mostly take anything from around 100 - 250 volts from 50 Hz to 400 Hz. and convert it to laptop power. Input doesn't even need to be a reasonably clean sine wave.
