Back in July, Apple launched the newest version of its OS X operating system, Lion. The software debuted in Apple's Mac App Store and racked up a million downloads in the first couple of weeks of availability. However, downloading is not your only option; Apple announced that it also had plans to release the latest iteration of its OS on USB stick this month.
Well, today is the day. Apple is now officially selling a $69 flash drive containing OS X Lion (opens in new tab). Yes, that's more than double the price of the regular digital version that launched last month. However, considering the drive is aimed at those who lack the bandwidth to snag the 4GB digital version (price: $29), the $70 USB stick may well be cheaper than the overage charges they'd incur for downloading that large file.
If you've got slow internet or a cap on your bandwidth and can't afford to fork out $70 (or don't want to) for OS X Lion, you can always lug your computer down to the local Apple Store and use its internet for your digital download.
