Why the Raspberry PI with Dvmega?

After many weeks of research and debating, I decided to purchase the Raspberry PI 3 and DVMega Board. (See places of purchase below)

But there were many other option... None I liked..

I wanted something really portable and small.

Well..

Shark RF was pretty strong contender, however, the one thing that did stop me was that it has no onboard Wifi..

To overcome this, you would then have to buy a small Wifi Router, plus a power supply for the Router and also a short Cat3/4 Ethernet cable..

This would then allow me to connect via Wifi from the SharkRF to a 3G/4G Dongle so to connect to the internet.

There were just too many pieces of hardware, and also reading that the selected TPLink Router was very unstable.. Too many things to go wrong.
