Default Power Inverter for Laptop

Hello, I am looking to buy a power inverter for the rear console power outlet to play DVD movies on for my kids on our next trip. My question is that I am not sure the rear power outlet is powerful enough and I am wondering if you guys that know more can help. My laptop is rated at 110-120V/1.7A, so roughly around 200watts needed. So I found the below power inverter that I was gonna order thats says it needs 20amps. So what I am confused on is the rear power outlet is a 20amp fuse, but in the manual it says not to use anything above 13amps. Will this power inverter work or will it keep blowing fuses? Like i said i am trying to connect this laptop so i can play movies on it for trips and don't want to keep blowing fuses. I thought I was good to go since this inverter and the outlet fuse both say 20amps, until I saw in the manual that the oulet shouldn't go above 13amps. Has anyone else had success running an inverter off of the rear outlet? thanks for all the help
