And I don't understand why you need a trusted computing chip if you decide

of a public key on a chip from Dell makes a lot more sense. It's more
configurable in a user-friendly way, and less configurable in a RIAA/Big
Brother friendly way.

Because with a TPM chip you can verify (remotely) that the hypervisor that
booted on the machine is really the one you trust, and not a malicious or
backdoored one.
