@BobTheThird - It's not something I'd jump on were it not for some life insurance/vitality payouts at the end of the year but I agree with Magius, it's not a bad price point for what you're getting.
I've no doubt it'll still fall consistently behind high-end PCs but it's a good match for the surge in 4K TVs and given MS's shift to the incremental model it's far less of a risk than a PS4 Pro. Sure the next console will be a step up, but you'll still get to play all the games, albeit it lower graphical settings,, and the devs will have done the tweaking for you.
I won my PS2 at work and swapped a PMI Razor paintball gun for my 500GIG Xbox360 and got my son Call of Duty edition Xbox360 for R800-00 with 5 games and a big box of Lego….
My son got his 3DS from ABSA Motor finance as they harassed him on his cellphone for outstanding payments and I threaten them that I will open a harassment case at the police against their directors. Part of the apology was the 3DS.
Swapped a limited edition 2008 Gencon exclusive Spectre figure for a 2DS…
I never paid full price for any gaming system…currently in talks for a PS4 and a Venter trailer for a mountain bike…

...and it still only plays regular Xbox One games just at a higher resolution.
Add to that the unfortunate, but inevitable, announcement of a PS5 that will likely make the One X look like a fancy paperweight and I don't have much reason to get one. I have been eyeing the S though, especially with a potential price drop.
Though heaven knows why seeing as I have my PC right there...
"we can definitely say is that the machine is a love letter to the core gamer, with many forward-looking features. The implementation of FreeSync support - something we didn't have time to fully test - is the kind of feature we didn't expect to see until at least the next console generation. Meanwhile, the backwards compatibility features really are superb - if you've stayed with Xbox across the generations, you're in for a real treat here. There's a sense that Microsoft is paying homage to its roots, honouring its past successes and making genuine efforts in curating a great library - all at no cost to the user."
