You can now purchase Apple's Mac OS X 10.7, aka Lion, on a flash drive or pen drive or memory drive as you say it for $69 and, yes, it is the exact same operating system that is available at the online Mac Store for $29.99.

The USB thumb drive is available through Apple's online store, where Apple explains that the $69 lets you install the company's new OS without a broadband connection. That's a $40 convenience free.

Apple doesn't note the size of the flash drive upon which Lion resides, but the Mac App Store download weighs in at 3.49GB, so we're betting that their slim, oh-so-sexy, Apple-branded thumb drive is a 4GB model.

Do note that you can pick up a 4GB Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 for $7.99 at Amazon (£4.26 in the UK).
