Apple Now Selling Lion USB Drive in Retail Stores

Apple is now stocking flash drives preloaded with Lion for users who are unable to download and install the OS from the App Store. The drive costs a hefty $69.99, a $30 premium over the base cost of Lion, but Apple is offering drives for free to eligible AppleCare users.

If you already have a spare flash drive handy, check out Apple’s Recovery Assistant to roll your own portable install drive for free.
