I have notced lately any Microsoft update takes a long time. If the laptop was in the store for a while it may have older released software and the OS and any apps pre loaded will be doing updates.

I would just let it do its thing and make sure it is pluged into power.

Microsoft also is adding a lot of junk on releases and it may be wise to look at any addons they added including browser stuff.

@dantexas

What is likely to be the case is that your PC is downloading the Oct 2018 Feature Upgrade -- which is essentially a whole new version of Win10 -- and that takes several GB of disk space to hold the files.

 

This is because, as @tsac indicated, even a new PC could have sat on the shelves or in a warehouse for weeks or months, and when you first power it up, it will contact Microsoft and look for the latest updates.
