This one looks nice. Latest core i5, nice GFX card, HDD and RAM.

You should check the market rate for it. Usually for laptops, the market rates are lower than online rates.
THIS ONE is also similar
the difference between
HP Pavilion 15-ab522TX (6th gen i5) and HP Pavilion 15-AU111TX9 (7thgen i5)

Will buy offline.

Yes.. one in the link you shared is 7th gen. I think it is the latest one.

When I was looking for a laptop 2 years back, i went to many shops with my list of requirements and asked for rates/models of the laptops (from HP and Dell) and then checked their details, performance reviws at home before deciding the best in my budget. You should also do this.

Although this is a laptop specific thread and I have subscribed to it for a while now, but still I wanted to share an update not related to the thread exactly.

After waiting for a long long time(read: years), I finally took the plunge and ordered a beast of a machine for myself.

Not a laptop but a powerhouse desktop :D

Yes a desktop, as mobility and small form factor wasn't much of a concern to me for the powerhouse I was looking to get. Took full advantage of boxing week deal here in Canada and ordered the below desktop.

http://www.dell.com/ca/p/xps-8910-desktop/pd?oc=dxps8910_btsb_136e&model_id=xps-8910-desktop

Specs at a glance:
  • 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.2 GHz)
  • 24GB, 2133MHz, DDR4 RAM with support up to 64GB
  • 256GB M.2 Solid State Drive + 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 with 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Memory
  • BDRE Drive (Reads and Writes to Blu-Ray disks)
  • Sound Card: Integrated 7.1 with WAVE MAXXAudio Pro

Dell 28 inch Ultra HD 4K Monitor

Can't wait to get my hands on this beast :-D , which would be first week of January approximately.

Main usage would of course be: Photo Editing, Gaming, Media & Entertainment.

Desktop is really a beast.
Laptop has limitation of screen size etc.
Those who can get a desktop,
nothing else matches it.

Got the below mentioned one recently. But their redemption center is one big hellhole.

Some other buyer of another HP laptop typed a wrong serial **********1 instead of **********L for redemption.
And because of the mismatch my extended warranty and a 1tb HD has been held back for no mistake of mine.

Even a month after followups by me, the dealer and also their local office in bhubaneshwar they are yet to get back.

Try escalating to HP India through social media if not done already. Could work.
