The hardware is brand new, but the operating system software may have been frozen at a known stable level by the hardware vendor weeks or months ago. So when Windows checks, it will find a whole bunch of recent updates not yet installed.
Windows Update has a number of options you can select. I prefer the option to load the updates to the computer and inform me about it, but not actually install them until I tell it to go ahead.
