Purchased OS X Lion simply by phoning the Apple Store UK and Eire (0800 048 0408) and paid £11.38 + VAT.
They either email an Redemption code (within a password protected pdf file) or send the code to your address which allows you to later download directly from the App Store.

In response to one comment posted below, I should probably make it very clear to anyone else who might be confused or feel mislead by this review. Apple Store will send you a code which you use to "download" OS X Lion from the App Store. It's not possible to download a thumb drive. The image file is 4.74Gb and may take some time to download if you have a slow Internet connection, but once downloaded can be saved to a cheap USB drive or burnt onto a dual layer DVD and reused for any future installs. £14 vs £40?

I have just installed Lion on a 6 year old MacPro 1,1 -- first-generation Mac Pro -- that has plenty of life left in it and has been running Snow Leopard since I bought it. Snow Leopard is no longer maintained by Apple: security risks abound; Mountain Lion, Mavericks, etc will not boot on standard MacPro 1,1 (the firmware is 32-bit not 64-bit, and Lion is the last OS X that will boot on the bogstandard machine) and I didn't want to go through the pain of a non-straightforward boot / install process (though there is one). The Apple Shop will email you a voucher for Lion in the App store (in exchange for 14.00), but there are many complaints out there that once they sell you the voucher it's impossible to find the Lion. Having it on a (4gb) memory stick seems to have saved the situation, and it is presently downloading updates.

I will try to upgrade our 6y/o Snow Leopard Mac Mini in the same way:

I received the product on time and in good condition. Installing it was very easy and my Macs are running faster than before. If you have multiple Macs running Snow Leopard, this is a very economical way of updating the OS. Now I can install applications which run only from OS X Lion 10.7 upwards. I am very satisfied with it.

This is quite simply brilliant. Easy to install OS X if your Mac or Macbook doesn't have an optical drive and fantastic value for the price. Upgrades from Lion are free, so the latest OS can be installed for less than £20. If only other operating systems came on a USB drive as well.

If you really want, you can erase it and use it as a normal USB pen afterwards. This is a must have for enthusiasts, who want to install Lion on a non-Apple Intel machine, as a hobby. Otherwise, if you have an Apple computer, just get it cheaper from App Store.
