I always think that 7600 is 6500, but,

1 7600 can support more wan interface type/module/card

2 7600`s IOS is router`s IOS and 6500`s IOS just looks like router`s IOS.

of course 6500 is a good guy(I like him), but if you want to bay a router, 7600 is.

The advantage of a 7600 as a WAN aggregation router vs. a 6500, Cisco appears to orient the former toward WAN and the latter toward LAN. Sorry can't provide 4 others, but what module cards are unique to each series is critical. Software features for common modules seems about the same, but there is now a software split and likely we'll see more feature differences in the future between LAN/WAN.
