Umm why one earth would your DSA cover an all inclusive trip to Dubai?

DSA is there to help you cover any expenses your disability causes in relation to your education, so in theory yes DSA may cover you for a new laptop if your disability makes it so that you need a laptop to study. Though really you should be talking to the DSA providers about this to get a better picture.

This thread just shows all that is wrong with DSA and peoples perceptions of it!

In reality OP, if you have a disability related need that requires you to study away from university, and evidence of this, then DSA can provide a replacement laptop computer to ensure you are successful in your studies. You will need to apply for DSA (if not already done so) attend and assessment where your needs will be identified. If you've already done this, then a top-up assessment can be requested due to change in circumstances.
