[Discuss] Favorite OSHW Linux computers?

I am curious about something.
I am doing some reading on secure (if such a thing exists) operating system variants like tails right now.
it appears that there are also vulnerability vectors in hardware, such as the USB attacks that bunny has exposed.
Is there a variant OSHW computer that is designed specifically to provide maximal HW security when operating with a secure OS??

I ask because a key argument for open source software is the internet security provided by the open nature of the code.
I am wondering if there is a similiar argument to be made on the hardware side.
what do you think?
