Can't be bothered counting them all, but ~70 laptops, all of which are dualcore CPUs, about a dozen phones of various sorts incl 2 blackberries & 2 Androids, 4 desktops, a couple of IP-Phones, 2 Smart UPS's.

Then there's about a dozen dead or partially dead laptops, some of which are singlecore, some dualcore.

That's within a 2m radius, if I roll backwards 5 metres then there's another 15 servers all of which have at least 1 dualcore CPU in them, and a couple of shelves with another 30-odd laptops all of which are i5 based.

Just within the arms reach? I took this literaly, and could only count 3: iPhone, laptop + desktop.
This does not include however the fact that the Laptop and Desktops are both Quadcore CPUs, so technically that would mean 4 processing units in one, which would bump the count up to 7
