From the specs sheet, it doesn't look like this laptop has support for 2 internal hard drives. You could still use an SSD as your OS drive, then use an external hard drive for your storage.

I did a quick search on Dell and it looks like the Studio 17 can support 2 hard drives. I don't know what kind of budget you have, but you'll probably have to settle for a 17-inch laptop if you want dual hard drives (don't quote me on this though). Other manufacturers have laptops with support for dual hard drives, just need to check on their sites as to which ones do.

Yes, that should work just fine. You probably don't have to worry about RAID, since I highly doubt this laptop supports it.
