If you're willing to put in a few hours of work in you can very easily build your own turtlebot. Just by a compatible base like the irobot create or the kobuki which has ROS support and then add your cpu/sensors on top. The kobuki especially comes with enough paraphenalia so that you don't need to wire any electronics for a basic turtlebot-like configuration (just plug'n play). This will probably almost halve your costs.

The turtlebot source code can then be a very good reference as to how you can arrange your launchers and robot description to completely ros'ify your robot.
