So I've applied for my DSA today, I'm just wondering if I can take my funding I'll be receiving from them and use it towards an iMac? I'm dyslexic and a photographer/videographer so I don't really think I'll need a Toshiba computer/etc. and the iMac would be a lot more useful than them.

DSA won't completely fund an iMac. After your £200 contribution, they'll make up the costs to what is recommended for you. The exact price will depend on the supplier they choose, but it's not a huge amount generally. This is usually a relatively cheap laptop with minimal specifications - it's not so you can do literally all of your work on it. Anything on top of that you will have to pay for yourself, this includes upgrading to a higher spec and/or Apple product

Oh no don’t worry, I’ve been saving towards one I was just wondering if they’ll let me use the money I get from them towards the one I’m saving for? I assume from your answer that that’s a no.

No, no. You should be able to upgrade to an Apple one. You'll get more information about upgrading and stuff when you have your assessment which I'm assuming you haven't had, and when your list of things comes in the post with the suppliers you need to contact once the assessment report and quotations has been approved by student finance
