Wow, really? I understand you probably didn't want to put your own race as underpowered, but I can't say that I think Protoss is underpowered in any way. Except maybe against EMP, which is more of an issue with Terran being OP.
from what I've seen (from replays and my little experience so far in retail + experience in beta) none of the races are really op or up. I've seen replays of good terran players loosing to equally skill zerg players and vice versa. I've seen protoss loose to and beat zerg and terran players. most of the people saying "x is op and y i up" are mainly people who refuse to do what is neccessary to adapt in order for them to accomplish something.
I play Zerg, and I don't think any one race is over powered. That said, terrans have the most versatile buildings. Each of their 3 buildings have units that are good against armor/light air/ground. Protoss' three main buildings don't, and by that I mean the robo fac doesn't have anything that shoots air. On top of that the protoss army is extremely centered around the gateway units, and players can expect to see some of them in almost any army the protoss makes.
So, it's easier for terran to respond, or add tech because their buildings give them those options from 1 building rather than having to make a different one. But that doesn't make them over powered.
WHAT?! A zerg saying toss is OP? Zerg only has to worry about 3 things from protoss.
1) 4 gate
The problem with 4 gate is that you have to use a very specific build to stop it. As ofr the other two, you basically mass hydras, a few roaches and get one other unit to deal with those two (depending on which they go)
