Disabling ME is a pretty big jump. It has a lot of controls built in for multiple parts of the CPU so I wonder how the CPUs will perform with it disabled.

That said, the only possible back door I could see is in a vPro enabled platform. A lot of consumer boards use non Intel NICs which alone kills vPro.

Or you could buy only PC's with AMD chips. I hate when people reflexively say the market will fix it, because it often does not, but there is a chance it could in this case.
