For the diagnostic data, here is what the two different choices send: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...k-and-privacy-in-windows-10-microsoft-privacy

For the 2nd item, this is what it does: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/11579/microsoft-account-find-and-lock-lost-windows-device

You can always easily change both under the privacy section.
Thanks. I know what the choices are. Of course MS wants as many data as possible but from a user point of view, which is the recommended option? Also, does full option slows down the ultraportable more?

It depends on each individual's preference, so I can't really can't answer that for you. The links I gave explains what each choice does, so that will be one you will have to decide on.

Also, does full option slows down the ultraportable more?
No it will not. Microsoft has basically had those options for a while now (to various degrees), and it won't affect performance.
