Simply put, I wanted the input voltage to always be 12v. Sometimes boat batteries can drop below that due to discharge, so I wanted the ability of the Pi to keep running. Those step downs wont work in that situation.
I thought that the Pi could run on 5V, but didn't look closely at it. My Netduino wants 7-10V ideally, so a step-down only power supply was more than adequate.
