    You could use a wireless keyboard (and mouse? I'm not sure) combo.

    Other people in this thread are suggesting to use the HID-to-VPAD homebrew to allow a USB keyboard/mouse combo to be used as a GamePad. This is not what the OP is asking for. He want to know if it is possible to actually connect his laptop to the Wii U and use it as a GamePad.

    It is possible, but not a lot of people have actually accomplished it. It doesn't use Bluetooth, but rather Wi-Fi to connect to the Wii U (which means that you cannot be connected to the interwebs at the same time, unfortunately).

    You will need Linux on your computer, preferably a version of Ubuntu ~13.04 I think? You will also need compatible Wi-Fi hardware, which may mean purchasing a usb-rt2800 (or something like that) USB modem. You will also need to set up libdrc and some other program, look through page 10+ of the forum to find it.

    I apologise, as I wish I knew more about this, but I don't.

    You need Linux and some other software. Wish I had a link but I don't. If you don't know Linux at all it wouldn't be worth the trouble to side-boot it just for that.
