According to an unofficial source, Apple has started selling bootable Mac OS X Lion USB drives to users who are in need of it through AppleCare. These thumb drives will allow users to install Max OS X 10.7 Lion on their computer without carrying out the painful task of setting up a bootable USB yourself.
Although we know that Snow Leopard OS was not distributed using a USB drive by Apple, if what we heard is true, the installation process using USB thumb drive will become easier and will complete in just matter of minutes.
To install Snow Leopard OS using USB thumb drive user need to download a 4GB of executable file but doing this on a slow internet connection will be a tedious task. But yet, for now Apple is offering this thumb drive for free to those users who are facing enough trouble in installing Mac OS X and even those users who are not having any trouble of using Mac OS X but want a bootable drive then they can do so by paying a steep price of $69.
So, if you are adventurous, excited and ready to explore these new development, then go ahead buy one or download a copy and perform the installation process using a USB thumb drive and share your experience with us!
