One last question - Say if I back up via drop box, if blockchain.info was to have problems where/how would you transfer the coins somewhere else as obviously dropbox isn't designed for bitcoin?

Would you be able to get them into another wallet provider?

Sorry for the stupid question, I only have 10 BTC, have never bought anything with them or had any other wallets.

That's not a stupid question at all...

See this thread for a discussion on methods to transfer your private keys from a blockchain.info wallet into other wallets: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=594570.0

Make sure you have 2 factor authorization turned on. It will send you a text with a code when logging in. Also set a different, better password for the ability to send bitcoins out of the wallet. All of this can be found in the settings on the site.

It's simple :
1. Use very strong password
2. Use 2FA SMS Message
3. Enable second password
4. Activate another security protection

Blockchain.info  have a google drive & drop box option to back up your wallet.

Would anybody recommend either?

No, it's dangerous if you have weak security on google drive / dropbox & your device is infected virus / spyware
You need use clean device & downloadit securely

I believe that you can get around having to use 2FA if you can get your hands on a backup of the encrypted wallet file. 2FA for blockchain.info is only specific to your identifier, if someone were to make a new identifier with your password and had your encrypted wallet file they could import your keys and spend your money
