Apple As widely anticipated, Apple's new major OSX release is available this morning, download-only, for $29.99 USD in the Mac App Store. There's a quick copy and paste job of the feature list after the jump. Also as expected, there's a new, Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Air. Update: A reader pointed out John Siracusa's Lion review at Ars.

I would find that very annoying! Keep in mind that the installer creates a permanent recovery partition, so if you only have one Mac, you may never need the DVD backup. On the other hand, if you have more than one mac, your $30 lets you install it on all your computers, so a DVD would be handy in that case.
