›› Definition: Kilobyte

A kilobyte is a unit of information or computer storage equal to 1024 bytes, assuming a binary system. This is not a standard SI definition, which would use kibibyte to represent 1024 bytes. However, most people have requested the more common usage, so the non-SI version is used on this site.
