I think anyone contemplating this sort of system in a cruising yacht at anchor
really needs to have answers on basics like average power consumption.
There are plenty of useful appliances
that are not practical on a small cruising yacht because of their power consumption.
I don't know if this is the case here, but together with the laptop
consumption it is not sounding promising.
If you cannot generate the power to run it its useless no matter how desirable, or functional it is.
