A megabit is a SI-multiple (see prefix mega) of the unit of bit for digital information storage or transmission, abbreviated Mbit (or Mb). The official SI definition uses the "mebibit" or Mib unit to represent 220 bits. However, most people have requested the more common usage, so the non-SI version is used on this site.
A byte is the basic unit of measurement of information storage in computer science. In many computer architectures it is a unit of memory addressing, consisting of 8 bits.
Since computer memory comes in base two rather than 10, a large portion of the software and computer industry use binary estimates of the SI-prefixed quantities, while producers of computer storage devices prefer the SI values. This is why a computer hard drive advertised with a "100 GB" decimal storage capacity actually contains no more than 93 GB of 8-bit (power of 2) addressable storage.
