    The new Windows tablet 2017 by Porsche Design bears a striking resemblance to Microsoft's Surface but it's not the only one. Competition for Microsoft's Surface book is piling up lately.

    For starters, Porsche Design has come up with a Windows tablet 2017 with similar specs to the Surface Book. However, the Porsche Design 2-in-1 tablet has a slight upgrade edge over the Surface Book.

    According to DigitalTrends, the Porsche Design Windows tablet 2017 runs on a speedy Intel Core i7 processor with a Intel HD 620 GPU. On the other hand, Microsoft's Surface Book runs on a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 with an Intel HD 520 GPU.

    Although there's only a slight difference between the display size, as the Porsche Design tablet has a 13.3 inch screen compared to the Surface Book's 13.5 inch display. The Surface Book has two cameras, a 5MP front and 8MP rear, while the Porsche Design 2-in-1 only sports a 5MP front camera.

    Then there's the Surface Book's next rival in the Windows tablet 2017 throne. This time, it comes in the form of Samsung's Galaxy Book.

    According to TechRadar, the Galaxy Book was spotted through a Windows Store app called "Book Settings." This discovery sparked some rumors that Samsung is prepping to release their Surface Book contender.

    Samsung themselves have yet to officially announce the release of their Galaxy Book. However, the clues within the "Book Settings" app suggests what the new Samsung Windows tablet 2017 Galaxy Book might come out with.

    It's reported that the Galaxy Book might be utilizing a "battery life extender" feature. This mode limits the charging capacity so it will not reach a 100% charge. This limiter is used in hopes to preserve the tablet's overall battery life, since batteries do inevitably degrade over the years. With these upcoming Windows tablet 2017 models on the horizon, Microsoft better come up with a beefier next generation Surface Book if they want to keep up in this ever-evolving market.
