Meta boxes are not used to divide a screen into sections visually. (An exception would be the Link Manager, which is very old and shouldn’t be used as a guideline.) They’re designed to provide flexible layouts for the post and dashboard screens.

Andrew Nacin, WordPress Core Developer.

Great description for meta boxes use.
