I'm thinking of getting a Wii U this holiday season alongside a probable 3DS X, an I was wondering is the Wii U like the Wii where everything is tied to the system its saved on. So If I bought a HDD for the WIi U a month afterward would I be able to transfer my purchases and saves to the HDD.

Yes, you can transfer your data from the Wii U's hard drive to an external hard drive you'll have formatted on the Wii U for the Wii U.

From experience, whether the game is on the Wii U hard drive or on your external hard drive doesn't hinder performance. I have recently just realized most of my download games were on my external hard drive and I thought they were on the Wii U's HDD.

You can transfer data from the Wii U to the ext. HDD no problem.
The account is tied to your NNID now, not the hardware anymore. They just haven't put any purchase transferring, etc. into effect yet.
