comment Why does the “free” command and “dmidecode” show different values for RAM?
As examples, in two 64-bit systems running RHEL 5.10 inside VMware, a 2GB "physical" RAM machine shows 2010 MB total in free, a 4GB machine shows 3948 MB.

comment Why does the “free” command and “dmidecode” show different values for RAM?
Well, no, not literally bits as in 8-bits-make-a-byte... but it is only a few tens of MB at most. Percentage-wise, it's very small.
