Armagh slipped to a second defeat in Division Two despite a brave second-half comeback at the Athletic Grounds.
Paul Cahillane’s 13th-minute penalty helped Laois lead 1-7 to 0-6 at half time and they were seven points ahead early in the second half.
Kieran McGeeney’s side played their best football in the final quarter, Stefan Campbell and Micheal McKenna leading the charge.
They twice closed to within a point but were unable to find an equaliser.
