Get the first one, Alienware tends to be over priced anyway.

Depends, if you REALLY LIKE TO GAME, then choose the Alienware, although it has a small screen.
If I were you i'll choose the Lenovo since its a 14 inch display, features sandy bridge i7 and has good graphics.

I think Alienware is too overpriced for it's own good. The Lenovo is cheaper and has better specs. Lenovo all the way.

I personally have chosen the Alienware M11x as my work computer and it does a great job at what I need it for. But I would choose the Lenova, the Alienware laptop heats up very badly without a cooling pad, and the quality of Alienware seems to have gone down. I am having a constant issue with the monitors hinge breaking from minimal use. It looks cool but not very functionable
