I just got a new laptop with an i5-3320m and the fan starts running when just doing simple web browsing. At idle, the temp is around 60c.

My I5-2500k desktop idles around 35c.

Is my laptop defective? Or do they just run hotter because the heat sink is smaller?

Just as a reference, my C2D on this 2007 MacBook runs at around 53C while surfing Tom's, I'm guessing the i5 will run a bit hotter due to the HyperThreading it supports.

Getting back to the point, your temperatures are fine :)  As you said yourself, it is most likely warmer due to the smaller heatsink.
