Hello.

windows 10 is terrible at hdd

Indeed, Swapnil. I've experienced it. I tried with WSL but it's not as fast.
My only options now were to upgrade to an SSD or change my OS. The battery life issue you said is common in all Linux distros I guess? Because I faced the same problem in Ubuntu 18.04.

Use TLP ( TLP UI ) . It's a power management tool for Linux and it boosted my battery time from 2 hours to 15 hours of streaming

Yes, battery life issue is same because of drivers support being not that great in linux. Wsl works great for me. Try exploring more and see what works best for you. Do try pop os and manjaro. As I have used them for good amount of time in the past for development.
