You can get rid of the fret buzz (lazer noises). First you have to locate the bridge, this is the thing at the opposite end of your strings to the tuning keys. On the bridge there should be adjustable saddle type things which the strings sit on, these are adjusted with allen keys. By raising these saddles (in your case on the E string) you can eliminate the fret buzzing. Adjust only a small amount at a time and keep playing it to see when the buzzing goes away. The higher the string makes it a little more difficult to press down on, but with no buzzing it sounds good.
