I would like to build a low-cost robot, preferably from the NXT kit or cheaper. I would like to run ROS on my workstation such that it controls the robot by sending commands to some kind of wireless interface on the robot and receiving sensory data - this way I don't have to buy a separate netbook or something to install into the robot and at the same time, run some pretty CPU-intensive algorithms. I was wondering if such a setup is possible.

If the above is possible, is there any reason why I should get a turtlebot instead of an NXT if both offer driving capabilities and the "robot brains" does not have to be physically connected to the machine?

You can control NXT by bluetooth. You can use stack with standart firmware NXT or own stack like with LeJos firware
