You can only play versus other players within the PvP arenas/gametypes. It's the same as explorable areas and such, you're in your own small instance.
I intensionally missed out the replay value thingy, need to rush, I'll come back to if someone else doesn't cover it by the time I'm back.

You will be able to Whisper as in PM characters that are online which you know the name of
You will be able to talk to your guild in the guild chat and allience in the allience chat
''the wilderness'' is the explorable areas of the maps. they contain stunning senery, wicked monsters to battle, and each time you defeat a monster there is a chance they will drop gold or items sometimes both.
Replay value i dont get what you mean but to answer your question yes you can just log in, do quests and stuff, meet people, basicaly anything you want.
Requirments iam sure your comp will be just find, my computer is made of spare parts and most of them are crap and old and gw still works pefectly.
about the ebay thing, i think you can get them much cheaper on www.play.com each one goes for 10 pounds which is a heck of a deal considering they were like 29:99 when they first came out ^.^

The last issue needed to discuss is the PVP. Ive been reading some threads which claim it to be dead. Now im not a picky bastard but i like to have players on when im on, and i dont mean a few, i want a few hundred. Be honest here guys, is the pvp going to die in a few months , is it dead eg... cheers all
EDIT: and i thought i was a fast typer! Thanks guys

I'm not a PvPer so I can't give too much of a well informed opinion but I feel it's still alive and active on most levels. It's just that the higher end of the PvP community are concerned with the current metagame and lack of support towards the PvP game so quite a few of the more well know players have began to leave.
What you wish to make of that is upto you, but that's how I understand it at the moment and I could be entirely wrong.

Just my two cents worth on a few points...
a) Trial keys are not 'cut down' versions of the game. They give you full game access but only for a limited time (two weeks or 10 hours play, whichever finishes soonest), so they do give you a real feel for the game - although you won't get all that far in that time.
b) People are advising you to get Nightfall, which I would have agreed with except for the impending arrival of GWEN, which is situated more in Prophecies territory so I wonder if it would be a better lead in...
c) I am not much of a PvPer myself, but listening to the chat from my guild mates, it sure seems alive and well to me.
d) I think there is LOTS of 'replayability' to be done.
Hope you enjoy it...

Whether RA/TA/HA you still have GVG and not forgetting the mighty AB.
Although Factions wouldnt be my first choice out of the three chapters without a doubt AB ( ALLIANCE BATTLES) are definately good fun.
