You are unlikely to be able to get credit, and certainly nothing over £500. You could try to make savings from your allowances and possibly try on Ebay.

If you can convince your IP of the need for the laptop they might agree a payment break, which will be added on at the end of your IVA, to get funds for another one.

Other than that see if there are any laptop recycling schemes operating in your area to provide school children with laptops for home learning. Local Facebook Coronavirus Support Pages might point you in the right direction.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
