Mathematic returns an expression involving SinIntegral[x] because this is as far as things can be simplified. That is, there is no other way that the antiderivative of Sin[x]/x can be written.

It would probably be better if you used FindRoot:

FindRoot[SinIntegral[x] == 1, {x, -5, 5}]

{x -> 1.06484}
