Nice looking machine .. no problems (or tweaks needed) with the install?

No problem at all.
Actually tested Peppermint a month or so back as part of the BDLL challenge. That time was on my testing PC, a Dell OptiPlex 755, which had no issues either.
Enjoyed the experience, so when Solus Plasma (from a testing iso) started giving me qt5 issues yesterday, I decided to install Peppermint on the Alienware laptop.
It may be over 8 years old, but still holds its own.

Shout out of thanks to AndyInMokum for modifying my post.
Been a while since I used forums.
Shall learn this one in time.
