Gaming, Internet, and TV.
I have sold my 8320 crossfired 7850 desktop. I came to this since I do not play demanding AAA titles as much as I used to. I now use my Xbox one to surf the net, make skype calls to my family, and play games occasionally. It works wonderfully for that. I bought the Xbox bundled with Battlefield 4 for $499. Battlefield 4 looks better on PC. But it is still very fun on the Xbox. For me this system works great. I still have my basic PC options. The kinect works great for skype and watching TV. (Voice commands work very well for me.) And my GF and her friends can play dance central together for hours in yoga pants! What a win!
No cons for me. Most of the cons you see others write you already know going into the purchase. Is PS4 more powerful? Sure. Does it make a huge difference? No. Will this compete with a PC graphically? No. These are not cons for me.
If you think the Xbox is overpriced for what it is then don't buy it. If you want a machine that can do more then just game this might be a good option for you. It was for me.
