x86 vs. other 32bit architectures (ARM, PowerPC)

I am new in 32bit embedded systems. Can you advise
me what architecture I should choose for learning
and future projects with embedded Linux?
At the moment I am a bit confused because of the following information:
1. x86 has the "inherited inefficiency"
- I do not really know what it means.
2. x86 has the higher overall cost
- After looking for SBCs I can not confirm this rule. I have
found a few x86 boards cheaper than 200USD but
boards with ARM or PowerPC are more expensive.
What would you choose for embedded Linux?
Thanks in advance
