Thanks.  Here's the output.  If the speed is due to the hard-drive then I am happy to put up with that for now.

Thanks MurrayMint

So the Windows partition tool tells me that it is Unallocated.  I created it in Windows by shrinking the main partition but I have done nothing with the space since.  Does this mean that I am safe to 'install alongside' and it will use this unallocated bit of the drive?

Hi there,

I have now split the harddrive into two main partitions, one for W10 and the other is unallocated.  When I try to install Peppermint it does now give me an option to install alongside.  Before I chose that I need to know whether that will use the unallocated partition or whether it will create a 3rd partition. 

On the install, if I select other option and try to manually select the unallocated, it asks me to format it.  When I go into GParted app the format is greyed out so I can't seem to do this.

What do I do next?

If you don't mind me quoting myself...

Quote away my dear fellow!  They seem to be going for about 55 in the UK ebay.  I guess I could go with one of the UK internet companies who offer guarantees and charge about 40.  Or I cause save a few more pennies and go for the slicer at 55.

So I have my Dell Latitude E6430.  It's as heavy as a brick but is slightly faster than my old Tosh and for 80 I am certainly not complaining.

One small problem is that the battery has had it.  It quotes 2 1/2 hours when fully charged but if left unplugged, after an hour it goes from 60% to 6% in the blink of an eye.  Does anyone have any advice on buying a replacement battery? 

Would you trust one of the 20 ones from Ebay or would you recommend spending a bit more for reliability?

Based on your recommendation (I asked for advice on a new laptop a few weeks ago), not quite the specs you suggested (i5 rather than i7) but for 80 quid you can't go wrong!

Sorry, I meant that whilst trying to install a new installation along side of an existing windows 10 there is no option to dual boot. At the moment there is just windows 10 and nothing else.  And yes I am booting from a USB.
