New MacBook chassis pics--the real deal?

The latest leaks come from Chinese site MacX.cn, which purports to show the new aluminum chassis of the 13-inch MacBook.

We all know that Apple is gathering the chattering classes together Tuesday in Cupertino, Calif., to unveil the latest MacBooks. But unlike many previous Apple product debuts, the Interwebs have been awash recently with reasonably believable-looking leaked spy shots of the laptops, or their component parts.

The latest comes from Chinese site MacX.cn, which purports to show the new aluminum chassis of the 13-inch MacBook. Interesting to note that the side view (pics are after the break) seems to omit the FireWire port currently found on the standard MacBook.

We will, of course, know for sure in about 24 hours, but if these pics prove accurate, that'll be the second Apple event in a row (after September's new iPod Nano presentation), where preshow leaks accurately predicted what we'd see. Does that mean the era of the top-secret Steve Jobs presentation is at an end?
