Wasn't it mentioned though in the book (twilight anyways) that she had a savings account? so really, that could have been where she got the computer from as well as the cell phone.


Yeah- but even so. It's not like Bella to spend all that money on a fancy mac when she could have bought a perfectly fine PC for $500 cheaper.

I suppose I don't mind so much though- The sponsorship dollars allowed the movie to be made.lol.

I agree with you on the computer part although that macbook that she uses is an older model that isn't in production anymore.They ceased production in october 2008 and from the way her email client is set up that mac isn't even running the lastest Mac OS so either she got it used for a decent price or she already had it from some time well before she moved to forks.
I’m sure you’ll ace your classes… apparently there’s nothing interesting for you to do at night besides study.

Okay, so it makes more sense now. I'm a PC girl, so I didn't notice that.

The vanquish is nice looking but i'd take the porsche over that and the volvo. Idk maybe it's the color. yellow looks good on sports cars besides i'd be afraid to drive anything that had 12 cylinders.

I would say that through Twilight we can see the progress made in technology in such a short period of time.

We have to keep in mind that Twilight was written back in 2003. I was 23 years old and I owned a cell phone (my first one). At the time, only a really small minority of high school students owned cell phones and I can recall that they were seen as aliens ("what is the need of a 17-year-old to carry a mobile?") Twilight the movie was released in 2008 when literally everyone would have a phone in their pockets!

In 2003 I didn't own a laptop, but a cousin of mine did. It was HEAVY and SLOW and pop-up windows will be all over the place. Of course there were models which were expensive and more advanced. When I bought my laptop in 2007, the prices had dropped - as it happens with technology - and I got a fairly good machine in a fairly good price.

No one mentioned Bella's camera! In New Moon (the book) she gets from Charlie a camera that uses film. In 2004 -I remember the year because I watched Paralympic Games in Athens and I had my film camera with me- the majority of the spectators owned film cameras, whereas the athletes mainly owned digital ones. In New Moon (the movie, released in 2009, when I am not sure whether film cameras still existed :D ) we see Bella with a digital camera, using her own printer to print her photos at home.

As far as Renesmee's mp3 player is concerned, I have always imagined that it would be an iPod nano 16 GB (in order to hold 5000 songs) but that's maybe because I read Breaking Dawn in 2009, when the device already existed. The book though was first published in August 2008, so I can't be sure about my theory any more...
