Yes.  The OS (and most other things in computers) define MB as
1024*1024 bytes (and GB as 1024 MB), while harddisk manufacturers use
MB= 1000*1000 bytes (and GB as 10^9 bytes) (which is actually the
technically correct definition). 

If you calculate 76319*1024*1024 you will find that it is almost
exactly 80 * 10^9, so everything is correct.
