Business Class Features: You will want certain features built-in and ready to go. For a business, I would suggest features that will make your network secure and your staff productive; such as fingerprint readers, data encryption tools, and remote desktop software. Your operating system that comes on a business computer should have features that the consumer computer does not have, especially the ability to join corporate networks.
Usage Requirements: If you are purchasing a computer that will be used mostly for home and only a little for business, then a consumer PC should be fine. But if your computer is mostly for business, it should be a quality business-class computer.
Durability and Reliability: Consumer PC's do not have the same build quality as business ones. They just are not built to last; with a lifespan of only 2 years. A business-class computer should last several years as their parts are name brand and more reliable.
Warranty and Service: When a consumer PC fails it is your responsibility to send it away for the repair. When a business computer needs help, and is still under warranty, the technicians will come to you. Business owners have priority status and a designated support line, all designed to get you back up and running faster.
