Windows 8 Snap Multitasking on Mac dual booting windows 8

I have a mac book pro with a resolution of 1280x800 and an imac with well over that. I know that you need 1366x768 to snap windows, but my question is: Is there a way to force the mac book pro to be enabled with snap multitasking and will the imac be capable of all windows 8 features even though its using bootcamp?
As to the second question, the iMac should be compatible with all of windows 8 features, if you are using Boot Camp 5. However keep in mind that windows 8 is about to undergo major changes which could affect it's stability in Boot Camp. This is the link to the faq page on what models of iMac that Boot Camp supports: Boot Camp: Frequently asked questions about installing Windows 8
So is there a way to force snap multitasking abilities upon the macbook pro?
If you're asking can the mackbook pro can run its' native operating system with snap multitasking, then yes. There's a program called Cinch that was specifically created for this purpose. It's nagware, meaning that you can use the program forever but if you don't purchase it, there's a nag screen that shows at startup. Link
