Is it possible to update my T. satellite 2805-s402?


Although it may be possible to upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2805 S402 in terms of memory, hard drive and even possibly video card, today's software are calling for a lot more memory and processor speed than a few years ago. So although you may be able to, I do not recommend spending that kind of cash on updating your laptop. Again, I do not know of your budget and would hate to put you in any unnecessary debt.
In terms of getting a web cam for the device, that is quite possible, once you get a web cam that is compatible with your O/S (Operating system) you should be fine. Try not to get one that is too taxing on your RAM as this may create an issue for you when you are using it.
Hope this helps...
