I want to know why i cant get AE CS5 for my laptop wich has a 32 bit OS.
Surly that is a step back on adobe's part because that limits most people to CS4.
Au contraire! Because AE is now 64-bit ONLY, it brings many advantages to the application, and Todd only mentioned a few. T's not like Adobe didn't tell people, either: they kept saying it over and over again that AE 10 would be 64-bit. They said it for 6 months before it was released. Probably even longer than that.
So if you want to use it, get a new laptop, a new 64-bit OS for your laptop, or both. And make sure you have all the ram that thing will hold; you'll need it.
