OS X Lion is download only, but what if??

Apple announced a couple weeks ago that Mac OS X Lion will only be available as a download from its Mac App Store.  So what about all the people who have slower Internet connections (DSL Lite), dial-up or, as scary as it sounds, those who don’t have Internet at all?  ComputerWorld has posted an article this morning with a workable solution – Use the Apple Store’s WIFI network to download your upgrade.  According to Apple, that will be an option.

Although the Genius Bar won’t install the upgrade for you, customers are free to use the WIFI network in store to download the 4GB upgrade.  This certainly sounds like a workable solution for anyone and with Apple’s network of stores around the country, one is certainly close by.
