When you format a partition using Linux's primary file system, ext2, you have the choice of how many bytes
per inode you want. From the man page:-i bytes-per-inode

Specify  the  bytes/inode ratio.  mke2fs creates a  inode for every bytes-per-inode bytes of  space  on
the  disk.   This  value  defaults  to  4096 bytes.bytes-per-inode must be at least 1024.

This means that by using a smaller size, you will save disk space but may slow down the system. It is a space/speed trade off.This is similar to one of FAT16/FAT32' major differences.
