Playing Wii U on my Laptop Computer.

I have an HD Laptop with an HDMI port, think I'll be able to play the Wii U on it via HDMI port?

Go read your Laptop Manual and discover that it's a HDMI Out port.

Yes you should be able to find that information online with Google.

Rare is the laptop with a video input. Your Toshiba is not a rare one.

Well I found an online manual but can't find anything on the HDMI port. Any way anyone can check for me?

So since it only has output, I cannot play the Wii U on it? Bummer.

Yeah, sorry to break it to you but your laptop most likely only has an HDMI out - which means you can use an HDMI cable to send the picture from the laptop's screen onto a TV but not the other way around.
A very small amount of laptops have HDMI INs - I owned one of those (an Alienware M17x) and I can say that for all intents and purposes it is easier just to buy a separate TV or a monitor - they are pretty cheap these days and are much more practical.
