Chipsets and SATA Controllers

Hey, guys. I'm in the market for a new laptop and I want to drop in a nice SSD right off the bat. My problem is not knowing what chipset a laptop has and what SATA revision it's controller uses. Most of the better SSDs support the SATA II revision (3GB/s) and I want a laptop that has a controller with the same supported speed.

I've searched Google to no avail and Newegg doesn't list any of that information for their laptops.

Any suggestions?

It's unlikely you'll find a recent laptop that doesn't support SATA II.
You'd need to visit the MFGR's website to look up the specific details of any laptop.
