The Swans continued their countdown to the Premier League season with a comfortable win over Blackpool at the Liberty.
The home side surged into an early two-goal lead through Danny Graham and summer signing Michu, before the Championship side pulled one back through Ludovic Sylvestre.
However, Laudrup's men restored their cushion before the break as Graham lashed home before last season's top scorer sealed his hat-trick in the second period with an easy tap-in.
Ian Holloway's side battled throughout and pulled a goal back late on when Thomas Ince netted from the penalty spot after the winger was brought down inside the box.
New boss Michael Laudrup named his three new signings in the starting line-up as Chico Flores, Jonathan de Guzman and Michu all made their Swansea City debuts, while youngster Ben Davies was handed a start at left-back.

After the crowd got their first glimpse of Michael Laudrup in the home dugout, the Great Dane couldn't have dreamed of a better start as the Swans took the lead in the first minute.
After a flowing move, the ball broke in midfield and as Blackpool skipper Barry Ferguson attempted a backpass it was intercepted by Danny Graham and last season's top scorer made no mistake as he coolly nicked it past Matt Gilks before tucking into an empty net.
It was a very tactical start from both sides as the Swans looked to impose their impressive passing game while Blackpool also wanted to get the ball down and play on a good surface.
But it was the home side that posed a far greater threat going forward and Laudrup's men doubled their lead after
17 minutes as Graham played Michu in on goal and the Spaniard coolly slotted the ball past Gilks from just inside the box.
However, soon after Gary Taylor-Fletcher had rattled the Swans' crossbar with a vicious strike from range,Ian Holloway's men pulled a goal back as Ludovic Sylvestre lashed the ball home after the hosts failed to clear.
But the Swans nearly restored their two-goal cushion just moments later as Michu got on the end of Dyer's low cross, but the midfielder hit his effort straight at Gilks.
The midfield trio of Leon Britton, Michu and De Guzman were all linking up well and after the latter played in Ben Davies with a lovely pass inside, the young full-back pulled the ball back for Wayne Routledge but the winger curled his effort a fraction over the bar.
Ian Holloway made his first change of the evening five minutes before the break as Thomas Ince replaced Chris Basham, and the former Liverpool winger made an instant impression as he danced past Davies and Dyer before forcing Michel Vorm into a smart save at his near post.
However, the Swans went up the other end and restored their two-goal lead as Dyer did well inside the box before laying the ball off to Graham who coolly slotted past Gilks from 12 yards.

The Swans started the second-half well and could have extended their lead further on 55 minutes as Rangel and Dyer linked up well on the right before the winger crossed for Michu to head goalwards, but his effort was held well by Gilks.
Soon after, Michael Laudrup made his first changes as Gerhard Tremmel replaced Vorm in goal and Jazz Richards came on at right-back for Angel Rangel.
And it wasn't long before the home side notched their fourth of the evening just before the hour mark.
After a poor pass in-field from the visitors, Nathan Dyer intercepted before skipping past the challenge of Stephen Crainey and after his low shot was parried by Gilks, Graham was on hand to tap home and complete his hat-trick.
Amidst a flurry of substitutions, midfielder Kemy Agustien saw a free-kick sail over the bar before Blackpool were awarded a penalty with just under ten minutes to go.
Thomas Ince surged down the right hand side and after he was adjudged to have been pulled down, the winger stepped up himself to send Tremmel the wrong way and reduce the deficit.
And the visitors nearly grabbed a third just a few minutes later as James Caton's shot from 20 yards skimmed the right-hand post.
