And this, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of why Nintendo needs to market its console better, lol.

I use it to hold down papers on my desk if I have the window open.

it is Nintendo's new home console.
it is not a portable (though it does have remote play features).
it DOES NOT plug into a Wii.

and thus concludes my post.

Wii U is a completely new console, seperate from the Wii. Wii U is 100% backwards compatible with Wii software, but not Gamecube. While the main console looks similar to the Wii, it isn't, the controller has a touchscreen built in, and several games allow you to play them on the controller instead of the tv. Nintendo also created a secondary controller, which is similar to the Xbox360 controller.

You do not need a Wii to play Wii U in any way shape or form. If you have more questions, ask.
