I want to know if the specs above run men of war Vietnam and lord of the rings war in the north on low- medium settings?

Will probably run Men from Vietnam as it's requirements are fairly low. The HD3000 is surprisingly capable. LOR war in the north isn't even released yet.

The problem is most games release requirements for desktops not laptops.

The Intel HD 3000 is slightly more powerful than the desktop Radeon HD 5450 video card. In a desktop environment the Radeon HD 5450 is considered a multimedia card not a gaming card.

However, in laptops the Intel HD 3000 is considered a decent entry level video card since the resolution is generally 1366x768. That should allow you to play not very demanding games at medium resolution with decent frame rates. In demanding games (like Crysis 1) you will need to set gaphics to low quality but you probably need to deal with average frames rates of 18 - 24.
