M1710 has: lights and a goofy-looking (imo) cover
m90 has: magnesium alloy chassis, more expensive and capable graphics card, 3-year warranty standard, and probably some more that I forget at the moment.
Which one costs more? Oh whoops, looks like the m1710 costs more. Makes no sense to me, but I'M GONNA JUMP ON THAT BANDWAGON! lol
