## Definition: Byte

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.

## Definition: Mebibyte

The mebibyte (a contraction of mega binary byte) is a unit of digital information storage. It is equal to 1,024 kibibytes.

Note that this site defines the megabyte as 220 bytes, equivalent to the mebibyte. Some sites define the megabyte as 106 bytes to distinguish it from the mebibyte, but most users prefer the non-SI form.
