With both teams out to prove themselves after last year's relegation from the top flight, it looked set to be a tough clash.
But Laois got off to a rampant start, stunning Armagh and leading 0-13 to just 0-4 at the break.
Then it was Armagh's turn to answer and they racked up 1-4 without reply - including a goal from top scorer Brian Mallon.
While the gap was closing, Laois kept fighting and points from Billy Sheehan and Ross Munnelly ensured the victory.
