For Intel, ICH5 (~2003) marked the first chipset with an integrated SATA controller. The earliest Thinkpad with a SATA controller were actually the T43/X41/R52/Z60 series (ICH6-M). But in T43/X41/R52, a PATA-SATA bridge was integrated so they actually used PATA IDE drives.
For Non-Intel chipsets, I believe VIA had it first in VT8237 (~2002-2003) and nVidia had it in nForce3 and some late nForce 2 variants (~2003-2004).
T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G, X32 (IPS Screen), A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad, A21m 2628-GXU
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
