My first Apple Device was one of those tiny iPod shuffles... and quickly after than, I got an iPhone 4. I have never had a Mac Book, and have used iTunes on my PC at work. Since then, I've enjoyed a variety of iPads and iPhones, yet I still don't have a Macbook. My point is, you can do it, if you want. There are alot of valid opinions here. The bottom line is, if you want an iPhone X, try one out. You have 14 days to return it if you decide you don't like it.
