Excuse my ignorance, I'm in the UK and I have an eMac and an iBook - wondered if the built-in DVD drives will read and playback Region 1 (US) DVDs?

It will. But you can only change the setting a number of times.
Find the name of the drive and make a google search with the name plus "mac" and "region hack" and maybe you´ll find a hack that allows you to make them code free drives. But as always, proceed on your own risk! You CAN end up with a non-functioning drive (very unlikely though)
AFAIK this is perfect legal all over Europe. Almost all DVD players comes with official instructions on how to make them code free.
