Macworld Conference and Expo Tokyo, 2001 attracted just under 181,000 attendees, show organiser IDG has revealed.

The figure matches the attendance at the Conference last year. The show was held from February 22-24, and was Apple's choice of venue for the introduction of a revamped range of iMacs, an improved Cube and some other tweaks to its product line.

The new iMac range features fresh colours – Blue Dalmation and Flower Power – both contentiously debated by the Mac press for whom the patternless iMac has become the new beige. The new range also features FireWire and AirPort compatibility, CD-RW in some models, and faster processors.

Nvidia and Apple shared the stage to announce the GeForce3, Nvidia's newest graphics chip that is set to ship as a build-to-order option on Power Mac G4s from March.
