USB OSX Lion Shipping Soon, But Do It Yourself For Less

Apple has made waves in the news with their stellar 2nd Quarter results, increased stock price, new MacBook Air and Mac Mini’s computers, no wonder many are talking about them.  In addition, Apple released another OS update, the OS X Lion.  Lion is available immediately via download off the app store.  Some may not want to download a new 4GB OS update.  For that, Apple will release their Lion on USB. First off, lets get some pricing out of the way.  The download update is retail at $30.  The USB stick is set to be at $70.  Not bad, but seems like their math doesn’t add up.  Granted you get an 8GB stick, but lets take a look…$30 for update + $15 for an 8GB stick, the retail should around $45.  Oh, and the Apple logo, that’s another $25.  Okay, now my math is correct.  I apologize. However, if you have an extra 4GB or 8GB stick you can create your own USB OS X Lion stick.  The USB tutorial isn’t that long and only involves three steps.  For the tutorial, I’m going to redirect you to the original post at BlogChampion.
