They are generally pretty good, much better than Dell's consumer models.

Generally true for most manufacturers as well. Business models usually run laps around consumer models, in terms of quality.

Usually ends up being just better quality parts and can last longer, as opposed to consumer models that usually have cheaper parts to be mass produced, at a lower price (this is why business models usually end up costing more: they're built better).
