i guess the $100 difference depends on where you are shopping.  for example, it's a $40 difference on amazon.

specs on the 170:

on the 270:
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/SPECS/VGNFW270JW_mksp.pdf

the graphics card differs slightly between the two models.  total available mem on the 270 is 1750MB while it's 1340MB on the 170 model.  also, the estimated battery life is slightly different on the 270 (a little better)
looks like the 270 has additional VAIO software, too ... like VAIO music box (whatever that is)

I was looking at the BestBuy web site and the specs seemed to be identical....
I figured there had to be a difference somewhere

i've always found the spec sheets on the manufacturer's website to be more comprehensive.  BB and other retailers usually give you a summary spec sheet that covers major features... but it's rare for them to give detailed specs.
