Are AMP pages mobile-only?

No. Since AMP pages can be viewed on all device types, build your AMP pages with responsive design.

How does AMP look on desktop?

AMP pages display equally well on both mobile and desktop screens. If AMP supports all the functionality that you need, you might consider creating your pages as standalone AMP pages to support both desktop and mobile visitors for the same page. However, AMP on desktop doesn't get search-specific features in Google Search results.
