I've come from an SVN/VisualStudio background, and one of the nice features of VisualSVN is its ability to show you in the editor which lines have changed. In the bar down the edge of the code window (similar to where Eclipse shows the error/warnings/finding markers) it will show you whether you line has unsaved changes or changes that have been saved but not committed to the SVN repo.

I've looked around in the egit settings, but can't find anything that has this behaviour. Is this functionality available in egit to show you which lines of a file have been changed (either unsaved, saved or put in the staging area) on a line-by-line basis in the main editor rather than having to open up a diff window?

Like where the green arrows are in the attached image.

I think this is platform behaviour which is configurable via Preferences->General->Editors->TextEditors->Quick Diff.
There you can also select Git revisions as reference source.

Correct, EGit supports quickdiff, the user guide explains how to switch it on [1].

Some trivia: Quickdiff support was the first usable function EGit had.

Just a quick follow-up - is there any way to differentiate between staged and unstaged changes using this? At the moment, they both turn up the same colour.
