I'd stay away from #1 and #3. I've played LOL on a machine close to the specs of #2, but you have to have all the video settings on low. The 1st laptop is amd's equiv to an atom processor, and will be slow as hell. The 3rd one will be too slow if its a single core celeron. #2 is really the only one you could play on low settings without lagging to much.

I would suggest you stay away from all of the above. None of them are really good gaming laptops, and the integrated video cards on #2 and #3 are .. well.. very poor. You might be surprised on how good that AMD really is. My opinion, if you only have the above options, go for no.1. It has a relatively decent video card and will help you more.
The Intel Core Duo (not 2) is also quite old. Try to get a core 2 duo or the new I generation. (i3,i5,i7)
Then again, the above AMD runs at 1.3 GHz and that is a little bit low also.
(I play LOL on the following spec'd laptop, 1440*900 everything max : Intel Core 2 duo, 2.2 Ghz, 4 GB Ram, NVidia 9600GT 512 vram dedicated)

Just try to get a decent, older, gaming laptop. Will only give one example, with no intention of promoting it : MSI Gaming Serioes (GX701.. etc) or any from DELL (but they are more expensive). Basically anything with more than 3gb ram, a dual core cpu (Intel to be preferred) and a good video card (Try to get one from Nvidia for the integrated physx 9*** or the 5*** series from ATI for the lovely directx11 compatibility)
