Mac OS X 10.6 correctly uses the SI prefixes, so:
1 kB = 1000 B
1 MB = 1000 kB
1 GB = 1000 MB
1 TB = 1000 GB
Binary prefixes are marked with an "i":
1 kiB = 1024 B
1 MiB = 1024 kiB
1 GiB = 1024 MiB
1 TiB = 1024 GiB

1024 kb = 1 mb
1024 mb = 1 gb
1024 gb = 1 tb

A TB (Terabyte) is a THOUSAND times bigger than a GB (Gigabyte).
That means more space than you'll know what to do with.

The first answer is technically speaking correct .. 1,024
For those who you are looking into the future ...
True binary values are as follows: / = ( to its power .. x 10)
1024 Ki kibi KB kilo
1024/2 Mi mebi MB mega
1024/3 Gi gibi GB giga
1024/4 Ti tebi TB tera
1024/5 Pi pebi PB peta
1024/6 Ei exbi EB exa
1024/7 Zi zebi ZB zetta
1024/8 Yi yobi YB yotta
I guess mathematically after that is GOD .. Omega (unlimited & forever) ;)

1000 KB = MB
1000 MB = GB
1000 GB = TB
TB means terabyte which just means more storage. There are 1000GB in a TB so TB is greater

A TB (Terabyte) is 1,000 GB (Gigabyte). A GB is 1,000 MB (Megabyte) and a MB is 1,000 KB (Kilobyte).
Kilo, mega, giga, tera and so on are international standard terms, and are how Snow Leopard measures disk capacity.
