    split screen on a macBook Pro
    I always use 2 monitors when working at home on the Mac Book Pro. I am traveling. Is there a way to split my one screen on the pro?
    In case it matters...I want to watch Netflix and write a word document simultaneously.

    While an answer to this question isn't life altering it certainly would give me the opportunity to come closer to having the creature comforts of home.

    Either manually re-size each window to half the screen or you could grab Window Magnet to have a sort of Win7 auto snap to size function.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    BetterTouchTool (free/donationware) and Cinch (pay-for) also imitate the window snap features of Windows 7.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Given that your screen is 16:9, this isn't going to work well. You can certainly arrange a window to have one app in a vertical window and the other app in a vertical window, each taking up half the screen. As a cinephile and occasional filmmaker, I can only imagine how completely awful and distorted that must look on the Netflix side.
