So how does the Wii U work exactly?

Does the new controller alone power everything and render those fancy HD graphics? Will there a base unit? If not, how do you send the Wii U graphics to your TV?

Think of it as a giant DS. The top screen is your TV, the bottom screen is the screen on your controller. But ohnoes your dad wants to watch sports. So you do something and now your top screen got transferred to your controller screen.

But what powers the system? Is it all built into the controller or will there be a base unit that runs with it similar to the Wii?

The console runs the game. What you see on the controller is just a wireless stream.
