    the macbook pro can handle SC2 (provided you don't get fucked by the drivers)
    also: mice are likely there, just out of the shot

    also hotkeys

    So much for the "S" in RTS.

    But honestly, that's why I don't care about StarCraft and similar games. Memorize hotkeys, memorize build order, win.

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.
    My penis is like a toddler. A toddler—who is a perfectly normal size for his age—on a long road trip to what he thinks is Disney World. My penis is excited because he hasn’t been to Disney World in a long, long time, but remembers a time when he used to go every day. So now the penis toddler is constantly fidgeting, whining “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How about now? Now? How about... now?”
    And Disney World is nowhere in sight.

    the strategy is in choosing which build order to use vis a vis your opponent's build order

    Yea I know, there is a lot to it actually but the most important aspects involve rote-learning which is not very appealing.

    There's a lot more to it than that.

    Day9 does a great job of explaining some of the strategy and psychology behind the game at higher levels.
