Snap functions something like snap in Windows 7. It will only work with two applications at once. Even then only one will be useable at a time because one gets most of the screen while the other gets much less. Snap will probably be more useful on large screens with more resolution than the minimum.
I have Windows 8 installed on an old tablet laptop bought in 2006. The specs are:
Toshiba Tecra M7-S7331
Screen: 14.1-Inch Wide Touch Screen
Resolution: 1440 x 900
O/S: Windows 8 Enterprise (90-day Trial)
Here are examples with snap being used:
Left side: Internet Explorer 10 (metro version)
Right side: Internet Explorer 10 (desktop version)
Note only two configurations were possible as shown in the following two screenshots:
Screenshot#1: Right side has most of screen
Screenshot#2:Left side has most of screen
