It can be due to couple of reasons.
1) Hard drive manufacturer advertise 1,000,000,000 bytes per gigabyte. But in proper definition in one GB, you have 1,073,741,824 bytes.

2) It could be the non-formatted capacity. (Non-formatted capacity is higher than the formatted capacity)

3) OS X takes up couple of gigs.

4) OS X also allocate some space for the virtual memory(5-10 GB).
