I have a 15" MacBook Pro 2.26 GHz purchased in late 2009, model "MacBookPro5,5".

The FanControl PrefPane reports

Right Fan: -1 RPM

Does this model only have one fan, or does it have two?

Two fans, unless it's a trick question and you consider them blowers :-)

Hm. That link is for "2.66 GHz" and faster. I have 2.26 GHz. Does that make a difference? This page appears to only show 1 fan: ifixit.com/Guide/… –  user588 Apr 9 '13 at 4:05
