The first part of the video is the... humorous... part, and you have to 
see it for yourself (I think there is an ogg theora stream available at 
the link above).

The actual content portion of Michael Dell's keynote mostly had to do 
with consolidation onto x86 hardware, eliminating proprietary Unix, 
growth of Linux sales, increased "performance per watt" of the new lines 
of CPUs (including AMD now), partnerships between Dell and other 
vendors, etc.
