You shouldn't have any problems playing on max. If you are unsure, download the Guild Wars trial from Anet's website.

Medium is fine with that setup. You can even run it on max and get 60fps. When gaming on laptops though, I suggest you invest in a cooling pad to avoid overheating.

That laptop can play most of the games coming out recently. So playing a 7 year old game, that is playable on a 56k modem and a single core CPU, is fine.

Integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 is the only thing that really slows it down, but again, it as proven to handle its own weight when playing Dead Space 2, or Skyrim at a steady 30fps.

Yes, that laptop can play GW1. At 1366x768 you should be able to get fairly high graphics settings and good frame rates.
