CHIP costs $9 opposed $5 for Raspberry Pi Zero, but HW is better on CHIP computer. It includes WiFi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. If you want to buy this part of device, the price will be very similar.

Support.
Raspberry Pi has a lot of community members, it's a big advantage.
Nevertheless, step by step. What is CHIP and Raspberry Pi. It is device with linux OS. Both support Debian (or some modification of that). If you have some problem, you can find solution on a lot of websites and forums.
Support of HW is individual, different for CHIP computer and Raspberry Pi Zero.
