I'm biased because I only really ever use Linux / BSD, and use a Power desktop, but the Open Power systems are actually quite good replacements for normal desktops and servers. The big drawback is there are no mobile devices, and of course Windows will not run but I think if you are running Windows the CPU hardware and firmware security is the least of your worries.

I also have a couple of ARM laptops. They are adequate, nothing special, but they do get the job done.
