    Relevent Question....What do you need it for....obviously a bit of all three but a gaming machine is a different animal to a business machine.

    I would buy neither of them :D
    If it was me that was trying to buy a powerful laptop, I would go for
    1 - ASUS
    or
    2 - MSI

    This are the best ones at the moment :D

    ASUS and MSI produce their own parts as for Lenovo and Alienware they just use parts from other companies like for ex Dell, so you are going to pay way more then you should...

    Edit: And don't forget that you are buying a gaming machine, why are you trying to buy one with a very small Display??? 14" and 15.6"

    Ive always been a VAIO person. Mainly because VAIO stands for[FONT=Helvetica, sans-serif] Visual Audio Intelligence Organizer. Technically, the IO is for 1- 0 . But most of the parts are made from ASUS and their own patents. So... Alienware it is[/FONT]

    Here I go with some links:

    ASUS ROG - i7 3630QM, 16Gb Ram (32Gb Max), 750Gb HDD, FULL HD 17.3", GPU 3GB GDDR5 [$1,299]
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7708024&CatId=3998

    ASUS ROG - i7-4700HQ (4th generation processor), 12Gb Ram, 1TB HDD, FULL HD 17.3", GPU 2GB GDDR5 [$1,361]
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8125604&CatId=4935

    MSI GT - i7-4700MQ (4th generation processor), 8Gb Ram, 1TB HDD, FULL HD 17.3", GPU 3GB GDDR5 [$$1,399]
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8143741&CatId=3998

    Another advice from me, you can find this laptops or better then this ones 20-30% cheaper if you buy REFURBISHED...

    I have bought several times refurbished laptops and I have never had any issues with them :D

    Cheers

    Edit: Just another tip, you can buy your laptop from amazon with a friend affiliate link, like this you can save even more :D
    As I know even big online shops like tigerdirect, bestbuy have affiliate programs, you can save $100-$150 if you buy through a friend or family member affiliate link
