Laertes is pretty impulsive and naive. Claudius is easily able to Manipulate Laertes into not only diffusing his anger against himself (Claudius) but also by turning it all against Hamlet. Hamlet, on the other hand, reflects and debates, sometimes ad nauseam. When Hamlet seeks revenge, at least he makes sure he gets the right person!
