Abundant Numbers

An abundant number is a positive integer whose factors (other than the number itself) have a sum greater than the number. For example, 12 is abundant because the sum of its factors 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 is greater than 12. What are some other abundant numbers? Are there any limits to the amount of abundant numbers?
