The alienware has a dedicated graphics card that will run games much, much better than the 15R.
15.4" Retina MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) | Node 304 mITX | Gigabyte Z87N-WIFI | Intel Core i5-4670K | Asus GTX 760 | Corsair 1x8GB | EVGA 600W | 120+64GB SSDs

I don't understand why people won't just build a PC. Hell... someone over at Reddit was able to run BF4 on high settings with a $280 rig after mail in rebates ($400 originally).

When people hear the phrase "build a PC", they get overwhelmed.

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.

First one has a dedicated gpu but it's really overpriced for what you're getting.
Second one is more of an ultrabook with only integrated graphics.

I wouldn't get either one of them for gaming though.

Peasants really make it sound like its a tough job. At first, I too thought it would be impossible to build a PC. I watched the Newegg build video several times before making it myself and referring to it. I was able to finish my first gaming rig in an hour... but thats because I have OCD and quad checking all the plugs and ports.

Can't build a laptop silly billys, did you even click the links? Well, technically you can but its a lot harder then desktops.

This one looks good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834313584

I'm not a laptop user though so what do I know.

No way that is true. Your video card would be a min. $200+ and you then have PSU, processor, mobo, and a case. Not to mention RAM and a HDD.
