I have at least 50 just in computers, maybe 80-100.  11 ceiling / 
bathroom fans.  1 carpet fan (really great after a hot run).  6 free 
standing fans.  3 AC/heating unit fans.  3 vacuum fans.  7 vehicle 
fans.  At least 9 for appliances.  Approx. 95-135 fans total.

Fans drive me crazy.  I'm always replacing them in computer power 
supplies, CPU fans, etc.  I had to replace one in one of the laptops 
recently.  It was a funky fan with no cage, three tiny arms, and an 
exposed rotor.  I ordered exactly the same manufacturer and part # and 
the configuration was much different.  Screws didn't line up, etc.  
Luckily I was able to wedge it into the air guide cage inside the laptop 
and it worked.

Oh, I forgot the fans in the UPS units, add about 6, and those in the 
entertainment systems, add at least 9 more.
