    bit 8 bits to the byte

    Short for binary digit, the smallest unit of information on a machine

    byte

    a unit of storage capable of holding a single character

    kilobyte 2 to the 10th power 1,024

    megabyte 2 to the 20th power 1,048,576

    gigabyte 2 to the 30th power 1,073,741,824 === 1,024 megabytes

    terabyte 2 to the 40th power 1,099,511,627,776 approximately 1 trillion bytes.

    petabyte 2 to the 50th power 1,125,899,906,842,624 === 1,024 terabytes

    Depends on how it's marketed; this is always a tricky one.

    In data storage, 1024 MB equals one gigabyte. When hard drives, desktops, and more are marketed with having "X GB of hard drive space", they are assuming a measurement of 1000 MB per gigabyte. So buying a new hard drive advertised with 200 GB of space has 200 GB if you consider every 1000 MB to be a GB. In reality you're getting 200000 MB, which will equal 195 GB if you do the division.

    Also, some additional space will be lost due to formatting. There is no way around it. Hope that helps.

    1024 mb = 1 gb

    the same as say

    1024 b = 1 kb

    1024 kb = 1 mb
