I did a clean install of Win 10, like you do, and have been configuring all the bits to my liking while the OS whirs in the background indexing and updating and all that other BS. I'm accustomed to slowdowns in this period of ownership, but after continuing performance issues I'm afraid this time is different.
No matter what I do every time the device is on battery things bog down. Screens take a few seconds to load, the cursor will occasionally hang, and--perhaps worst of all--registering keystrokes is significantly delayed in some programs. So far I've watched the CPU in the task manager to see if it spikes with the programs I'm using (Opera and journal writing software) but there's nothing to see. I've also left the laptop in the "high performance" power option but it doesn't matter. Battery power always slows everything up, some things worse than others.
Meanwhile in plug-land my keystrokes register immediately and everything is snappy like it should be (I mean, really, I'm not doing a lot here). Oddly, the effects of being plugged in will also last 30-40 seconds after I unplug until I'm slapped across the head with a baseball bat of sluggishness.
Can someone help me? To me this seems like a software issue, but I'm open to your expertise. Thanks.
Make sure all the relevant Lenovo drivers, especially power management driver are installed. You can use Lenovo Vantage application to get those.
It is possible there is some hardware issue with the battery (batteries), but let's figure out the software side first.

~After long discussion, the "Best Solution" is to stop the driver for wireless adapter (ASUS USB N66), which stopped the Win'10 shuddering
(Not sure if that is your X270 problem though)
