That sounds terrible. My non-touch Win 10 experience on my ThinkPad has been very good. Not flawless, but no show stoppers.
I'd start by tracking down the CPU-hogging processes on a bare-bones installation with up to date drivers and BIOS. Also use the Pro/Enterprise option to defer feature updates. Security updates are essential, so don't fight those reboots.
Good luck sorting it out!

When you are executing highly time sensitive tasks, every second or minutes matters to have the machine running as efficiently as possible, for batch jobs sure you can sit down patiently and go home, it does not work that way, The machine has to manage and run at peak state all the time, Win-10 overloaded baggage added more drama to the slowness, the same programs runs efficiently in windows-7 without CPU Spike - T420. Nuances around Net framework is not the answer.
We need more deep dive from CPU spike issue, it continue to reduce the confidence to plan for alternative Laptop besides serious investment for efficiecy.
CPU Spike choaking is not option.
