    I would prefer a Blu-Ray Burner. However, it's not going to be deal breaker for me if it's not there.

    Additional Information: I want to get a laptop that has AC wireless card that runs with 5GHZ, Not Just 2.4GHZ.

    I would like to get a laptop similar to the one shown at this Costco Website.

    You can buy 2TB HDDs and SSDs, so it would be possible to add one separately. I have not seen a hybrid with that size SSD though, but then there wouldn't be much point in a hybrid, the SSD is only meant to be a cache, not a drive in it's own right.

    I have a 1TB SSD, 1TB HDD and 2TB HDD. 4TB on my Sager, but it has two mSATA and two 2.5" bays.

    You aren't going to find a 4-5 pound notebook that can play those games with a battery that lasts 4-5 hours, especially with a 4k screen.

    Mine weighs almost 9 pounds without the power brick. Battery lasts less than 2 hours if I am doing light work.
