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.

there's no need to do such a thing. If you have your Snow Leopard disc and have legally purchased a copy of Lion, all you need to do is log onto your App Store account and download again. Its a lot simpler than some of you make it. Remember, you can't install it clean, it relies on Snow Leopard.

Mine is a legal copy of both. Downloading a second time is crazy at 4gb and how do you do a clean install without media, and yes with the boot disk you can do a clean install.

Some of us live in countries that have metered internet - in the case of me I have a 90GB 'allowance' per month so I sure as heck don't want to be wasting it re-downloading something if I can avoid it.
