And here's another little thing
When used to describe disk storage capacity and transmission rates, a megabyte is 1,000,000 bytes in decimal notation.
However.. when it comes to computer processor storage that's not the case..
Here a megabyte is 2 to the 20th power byte, or 1,048,576 bytes in decimal.
So when you are told you buy a 30 gig HD, what you actually get is 30 / 1.048576 = 28.6 gig
Why you only see 25 gig's I dunno... what about swap space n stuff?
