OS X Lion Thumb Drive tops Apple Store

18 August 2011 2,674 views 6 Comments

Never mind that you can buy OS X Lion on the Mac App Store for $29.99, the $40 more OS X Lion Thumb Drive is the number one item on the US, Taiwan, French, UK and German online Apple Stores. Yes, of course, Lion’s number one on the Mac App Store and has been since it launched.

That said, whether it’s an actual requirement (i.e. no broadband) or just a wooby (a.k.a. security blanket), many users still feel the need to have a physical copy of OS X. Although it’s easy and $40 cheaper to roll your own OS X Lion USB install drive, apparently quite a few people feel there’s an advantage to getting one from Apple.
