Would like to replace my old asus monster of a laptop that has been great, in which I had put in a second ssd drive.
I'd like to get a up-to-date (hardware) laptop with 2 ssds. 15.6" or 17" screen, FHD preferred, usb C/thunderbolt, 16Gb+ memory.
The tough part of this is the 2 ssd requirement. Either it is pre-built with 2 nvme drives or the laptop is easy to upgrade with a second drive.

Also not looking for a 10 lb laptop any more. Any suggestions?

Thanks CaptainCharisma, i've been looking at the thinkpad extreme gen 2 laptop. I would have gotten this one, but it only has 1 ssd option unfortunately. Its light enough and has all the other features that I like. I guess worse case, I just get this with 1TB and partition in two. Would really prefer to put linux on a separate drive, if I can help it and have win10 and linux play nice.

i actully ordered this laptop and asked the reps from lenovo sepcifically and they confirmed the X1 extreme gen 2 has 2 M.2 slots for drives

here is a youtube review of it it mentions the storage slots around 3:18

the lenovo thinkpad laptops have 2 m2 NVME slots for SSD's like their thinkpad X1 Carbon or X1 extreme. razer has a base model of the razer blade 15 that comes with an extra drive bay for a SATA drive

Interesting. When I spoke to them a few days ago, they were steering me towards a completely different model. Will have to check this one out.
