So, I've got well over 5TB of storage in the house and 49GiB of working memory...
just saying, that's all ;-)

So what's the difference between a GB and a GiB?

Well basically...

The SI prefix is generally used in storage terms as it allows manufacturers some flexibility in bad sector marking and SSD manufacturers the extra sectors for wear levelling. It is also very often mis-used as meaning a binary prefix.

The binary prefix is mainy used in digital electronics and more commonly in RAM figures as for every address bit you add to a device, you double its size.
