Today Apple sent out this nifty rendering of the company's new MePa outpost. How accurately does it depict the store, which is set to open in two short hours?

It's pretty close. Okay, so instead of a huge billboard above the store saying "Now open", there's one of those ads where a person convulses to the music on their iPod. And the rendering is missing a few buildings behind the Apple Store. But it doesn't look like they've taken too many liberties. Any other notable differences we missed?
