Normally you would be able to play region 1 DVDs on your laptop, but be careful - unless it has been multi-region unlocked, you are limited to a maximum of 5 changes between regions. So if you use it for region 1, you can watch as many region 1 DVDs as you like and that will count as one change. When you put back in a region 2 DVD, that will be your second change, etc etc. Once you have exceeded the maximum number of changes, you cannot then change again.
