Question Inverter to run PC on 12v DC

Not sure where to post this......MOD pls move if necessary.

Anyway my father wants to power his net-book on his boat (12v DC), and has been advised that he needs a DC 12V to AC 230V Power Inverter, but that it must have a Pure Sine Wave output.....the only thing most retailers don't specify the type of output.

E.g. see here: Soft Start Compact 12v dc to 230v ac - 150w

Can anyone shed any further light, we are based in UK.
