It's just an optional additional email address for your current email account that you can choose to use or ignore as you wish. There is no advantage to it. It doesn't cost anything. It does exactly the same as your current email address. It is not a separate account.
It is purely cosmetic. If you happen to prefer an email address ending in @icloud.com (to reflect the service name) then use it. Otherwise continue using you @me.com (or @mac.com) address. It makes no difference.
