The August issue of PC Gamer is going to have a ton of exclusive information on StarCraft 2. Or, thanks to the Internets, you can check out that information right here.
The video shows off a few new and remade units of the Protoss race from StarCraft 2. Of the new units, the Tempest is the most interesting to me. The Tempest seems to be a smaller version of the Carrier from the first game. Personally, I loved the look and size of the Carriers so I was a little disappointed that they changed them so drastically. I suppose it's understandable though seeing as how huge the Colossus is.
Here's a breakdown of some of the new and old unit types from the YouTube page:
