A post meta box is a draggable box shown on the post editing screen. Its purpose is to allow the user to select or enter information in addition to the main post content. This information should be related to the post in some way.

Generally, two types of data is entered into meta boxes:

Metadata (i.e. custom fields) and/or Taxonomy terms. Examples might be number of bedrooms for a property listing. The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 could be listed in a drop down box for selection when adding a property listing.
Meet in the computer trainer room. $5.00 dues collected each meeting.
