I'll echo Brian's comments from my Pi experience.

1. The Pi supply needs to be a decent 2A, no less.
2. The Pi USB implementation isn't very good.
3. Different WiFi dongles behave differently. I have a very flaky one and a
less flaky one.

I recently bought a Banana Pi in the hope of better performance than the
Raspberry. The hardware is tops but the software stack is lagging a bit.
King of my heap of tiny computers right now is the quad core Odroid. No
flakiness there.
