Computing giant Apple has distributed a memo to resellers allegedly warning that the company will be reducing production of their current-generation iPods and MacBooks.

The memo has been sent out as the firm makes a number of product transitions and apparently advises partners to immediately stock enough iPods to last four weeks and enough MacBooks to last three.

This latest development comes amid a whirlwind of speculation that Apple plans to develop a new range of laptops, including a touch interface mobile PC as well as another range of iPods.
