Since Alienware discontinued the AW 18 this is the only 18.4" screen laptop available. If you wait the new Nvidia Pascal graphics will be coming soon.

At 10lbs you're not going to be toting that thing very far or often.

If I read your post correct your going to end up with 4 storage units.

3 small and 1 large...sounds like a pita to me but if that's what you want.

If it was me I'd look at this unit.

Bin the hdd and fit a 512GB ssd in the m.2 slot.
That should be ample storage for most folks.
Pick up a 1TB ext hdd and use it for backup.

16GB of ram will work fine for 99% of users.

The only danger is that shipping across borders.
