Square wave will power most computers just fine as the power supply will regulate it. It might draw a bit more power, buzz or get warmer but nothing to really worry about unless it is excessive. Cordless tools are a different story, some of the chargers are very cheap and basic and can toast on a square wave inverter. Usually you can find information about it in the manual where it will say you shouldn't use it on a inverter or not.
