Default x100 versus alpha with similar power rating

what would have a better solid beam the x100 or alpha 65 or similar power rating? second what is the peak of ALPHA 65 OR SIMILAR RATING? LOOKING FOR A TIGHT BEAM OVER A DISTANCE. THANKS

The smaller beam diameter a laser has, it will usually have a worse divergence, and vice-versa.

All units are different. Some may peak at 70mW, some may peak at 100mW, while some may not work at all. A reasonable guess would be ~75mW.
This also applies to the beams. Some may have a slightly bigger or smaller diameter.

In comparison (without taking peaks-just advertised power-into account), the X100 would appear around 20% brighter. Having a "solid" beam would depend on atmospheric conditions, such as fog or humidity.

EDIT: Dumb lag...I sent a pm too.

if you want to use it to point in the night sky, the alpha is better because you can use it for longer periods of time where the X-series has to be turned off every 45 seconds or so where the alpha can stay on for about 5 minutes no problem (I've owned both and I like the alpha much more 8-))
