Thread: Lion USB Sticks Have Arrived

  1. #1
    Default Lion USB Sticks Have Arrived

    Apple decided not to ignore those in rural areas completely, stealthily announcing that OS X Lion would be available via USB flash drives. Well they're here, and cost $69.

    The Lion sticks resemble the recovery drives shipped with the new MacBook Airs, and contain a full install of OS X Lion. I can't really justify paying a $40 premium over the digital download of Lion, considering a USB drive of this sort (while all Appley) isn't worth $40. Heck, you can get 8GB flash drives for around $10 online.

    The drives aren't available online right now, which kind of defeats the point of providing them. The people who need this aren't within a sane driving distance of an Apple Store. Apple in a previous press release promised they'd be available online eventually. Until then, I'm not sure who exactly these little sticks are for.

    Why a USB? I'm kinda of a noob.
    Nothing in life is easy.
