Yes...many people are shafted by computer companies....


One is
monitor size VS actual viewable area

Another is
A metric megabyte = 1000
A standard megabyte = 1024

There is a class action suit about hd companies falsy advertising hard drive size...

hdd manufacturers have used them for years and in fact most people confuse binary kilobytes etc with metric.
