  • MORE

With a starting price of $999, the iPhone X is the most expensive mainstream smartphone yet. For that kind of money, you can get a high-end laptop with enough performance and battery life to help you get ahead at work or school.

Even though the iPhone X is powerful and has a great design, it still can't take the place of a notebook when you need to write a report, edit a photo or develop your own apps. And forget about playing AAA games such as Destiny 2 on a phone. Here are 10 great laptops you can get for the less than the cost of an iPhone X.

    None of those 10 laptops fit in your pocket, so they are not really alternatives to the iPhone X (unless you want to carry a laptop around with you 100% of the time... Even when you are running or biking).

    In addition, the A11 processor in the iPhone X has been benchmarked on Geekbench, at 4061 (single-core), and 9959 (multi-core). This makes the iPhone X a more powerful computer and most, if not all, of those 10 laptops.
