Hi Jason,

Without going into the detail of exactly what you are trying to achieve 
with this project, I can mention that a colleague has been evaluating 
the Raspberry Pi and the BeagleBone (non-black) for a wireless project, 
and discovered that the Beagle was superior in many ways, not least CPU, 
but including things like USB power, etc.

If performance and reliability are high on the list of priorities, I'd 
be inclined to go for the BeagleBone Black instead of the Pi.
