For .NET application, business entities can be categorized as Custom Entity, Typed DataSet and Generic DataSet. Custom Entities are generally simple and faster than DataSet, where as it includes more involvement from developer end, as opposed to DataSet, which includes lots of built-in functionality, along with several trade-off in performance end. Choosing the right business entity is one of the basic parts in the software architecture, which fits accordingly in application requirements and development context.

With stuff like NHibernate, LINQ and RAD Stuff from MS like the Entity Framework Designers; things are bit more rosy on the custom entities side. Typed DataSet and Generic DataSet might soon be obsolete if only DLR tuples can be used / Anonymous types become a bit more extensible.
