Just got a refurbished Surface Book i5/256gb/dGPU, starting it up, installing a lot of updates and now all my programs, is it normal for it to be running warm and with the fan on during this process?

It will get a little warmer when its being used more.

The more surface area that has air touching it, the better the cooling. If you are using it in tablet mode in your lap, it will have more trouble cooling off.
