If you have a wired Ethernet LAN, you can connect the Pi to that and access it from your laptop, using either ssh or VNC. You will need to write a file named "ssh" to the boot partition of the SD card to enable the ssh daemon. Alternatively, you could use WiFi as mentioned above. For that, you need to write another file (wpa_supplicant?) to the boot partition as well, giving the credentials needed to connect to the available WiFi, and--again--you can use either ssh or VNC to connect to the Pi. Once you have established the remote connection, data will be displayed on the screen of your laptop and you can input data from your keyboard. Just work within the windows involved.
As @whh has said, you use a network connection via the built-in WiFi. That's why I went to some length to outline 2 ways of getting that WiFi connection running.
