1. A computer system, comprising:

  • an adapter that has a first primary inductive connector that is adapted to provide power at a power frequency, and a second secondary inductive connector that receives a first signal at a secondary signal voltage;

    a computer that has a first secondary inductive connector that is adapted to receive said power from said first primary inductive connector at a secondary power voltage when said computer is adjacent to said adapter, said computer further having a second primary inductive connector adapted to provide said first signal to said second secondary inductive connector of said adapter;

    first feedback means for controlling and maintaining a level of said power supplied by said first primary inductive connector as a function of said secondary power voltage received by said first secondary inductive connector by generating a first feedback signal which is transmitted from said first secondary inductive connector to said first primary inductive connector;

    second feedback means for controlling and maintaining a level of said first signal supplied by said second primary inductive connector as a function of said secondary signal voltage received by said second secondary inductive connector by generating a second feedback signal that is transmitted from said second secondary inductive connector to said second primary inductive connector; and

    ,filter means for filtering said power frequency from said first and second feedback signals transmitted to said first and second primary inductive connectors.
