I demonically desire to find the moron who came up first with the idiotic idea of "micro", tear his friggin head off and his guts inside out and burn his fingers with a blowtorch.

Then I calm down and I get back to losing again.
I took a look at the replay you posted in another thread. Don't know how much you've improved since then, but here's some basic advice anyway:

1) You don't seem to have a clear build order. That's probably the first thing I'd look up. I'm not too familiar with terran builds since I don't play it (nor am I a terribly high-ranked player ) but I'm sure you can find something on Team Liquid, Liquipedia or even Youtube. At first, one very basic BO should be enough, later you'll want specific BOs for each matchup. To practice your BO, just play against the AI until you have memorized it.

2)You're not using any hotkeys. At this point, you should have at least all your army on 1 hotkey (you'll want to change that later), all your production buildings on another key (or separate keys for each type of building if you want), and all your CCs on another key as well. Cycle through all these periodically and you'll see that your production will get much better. Which brings me to my next point...

3)Constant production. You're not constantly producing out of your buildings, which makes your money skyrocket.

4) Scouting. It's probably not very important at this level, but try to make a habit of constantly scouting so you know what your opponent is up to. As the game goes on and you have a lot of Orbitals, you can scan a lot more instead of dropping a gazillion of MULEs.

5)If you feel threatened, don't hesitate to make more bunkers and pull SCVs to repair. You can salvage them after all

6)If you have money, SPEND IT. If you see that a pro player only has 4 barracks at some point in the game, that doesn't mean you can't have more than that. Once your macro gets better, you'll naturally need less buildings.

7)Abuse the crap out of Hellions while you still can. Seriously

Like I said, this is some very basic advice from someone who doesn't even play Terran (and barely plays at all ). Notice that I never mention micro. It's very fun to outmacro your opponent and then listen to how he whines about how you are a microless scrub

I was able to get SC2 to install and run on my Thinkpad T42 from 2004 - Pentium M 1.7 GHz, 1.5GB RAM, Mobility Radeon 9600. It wasn't pretty, but I played a couple of games against the AI without any issues on completely minimum settings.

With that being said, I wasn't brave enough to ladder on that machine

I'm gonna stop SC2. I'm getting really bored. All I'm doing is play a TON of ladder matches and not going anywhere.
