The next biggest concern is what happens when then Intel Management Engine / Pluton firmware is found to be a giant vulnerability. Will you get a fixed and signed replacement firmware after only five years or will you get a defective off switch after three years and support cancelled two years later.

No source code, no sale. If you cannot set the boot code verification key, put the box in the landfill with the Windows RT tablets.
