Apple Store, Reston Virginia opened to a picture perfect day. Photos of Apple Store Reston grand opening:

Well, it’s grand opening day for the Reston Apple Store. I woke up extra early to get a decent spot in line. When I got there about 50-60 people are already there. Great, not to far from the front.

The first people in line told me they were there around sun rise. The gentleman near the front of the line (first photo in the gallery at the end of post, green shirt) was nice enough to take a picture of me. Thanks!

I wore the black Apple Reston t-shirt, one that Apple would not give away until the store opens. However the Apple Store hasn’t opened yet, so some people were really curious about how I got my Apple Reston t-shirt in advance.

Earlier in the week when I went to take a picture of the Reston Apple Store, I noticed that the address listed on the Reston Apple Store is different than the address listed on Apple’s web site. Eventually on another visit I was able to talk to some people about the address problem. So I got the launch t-shirt in advance as a thank you.

Wait, no Mac pro and 30″ cinema displays? Just kidding, but seriously that would be nice. Apple, you wouldn’t want people to visit the Reston Town Center fountains instead of the Apple Store, would you? =p Story on the Reston Apple Store address glitch (aka the 2009 Reston fountain conspiracy).

The Apple people around the store were really great in helping the visitors, as usual.

Saw the matt screen version of the Apple Unibody MacBook Pro, an Apple Specialist said there was a 15″ version but I didn’t see that. The 17″ matt display MacBook Pro was on display though. Before seeing it in person, I always thought the bezel for the matt display looked fugly. Seeing it in person changed my mind. The matt screen bezel actually looks very nice in real life.

With the recent story on the Apple logo, I noticed the Genius Bar’s credit card swipe unit has the aqua Apple logo.

There were still a long line after I left.
