Question: how many (symbolic variables) can Maple deal with in a reasonable amount of time?

I am a novice user in Maple with some previous Matlab experience. My question is the following: I am thinking about doing some Maple calculations. The  calculations will involve (in the easiest case) about 15 (symbolic) variables , and it will require all kinds of symbolic differantation, integration etc. such as F(x)=b(t) where x is the symbolic variables and t is the differentiation parameter (all symbolic).   I would like to know how many variables Maple can deal with in such sort of calculations in a reasonable amount of time (say a couple of hours)?

Thank you for your help.
