Shipping is pretty quick. Probably more so for you in California.
I ordered the MBP as described above and an iPod Touch a few weeks ago. Both came from China, then to Alaska, then on through the FedEx System.
So my guess would be that it will come from China, to Alaska, then to you in California. Buy the 2 -3 day shipping and you will likely have it by Tuesday if you order today. If you add bigger hard drive, or some other custom feature it may take a day or so longer.
