OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard calculates storage capacity differently than previous versions of OS X. Previous versions of OS X used the binary system, instead of decimal, to calculate total storage capacity. For more information on how this has changed, see the Apple knowledgebase article here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2419
