Not sure if dell has them available yet, but I bet they're uber expensive from them. I saw a few on ebay but as usual, they sell quickly.
Edit, and yeah, I assume that the 1710 back lid should fit your M170. The framework for the screen, antenna, etc. are the same as the old models (despite what dell tells you), but yeah. give it a try and if you are able to get it, post pics of your mod
