Turtlebots are nice, and the newer ones are not too expensive. The Turtlebot hardware is very capable and fairly reliable, so it's a good platform for software experiments and testing new sensors.

If you want something a little cheaper, some of the older Neato vacuums make a nice base, and you can attach a Raspberry Pi to run ROS for SLAM. They're a bit more limited because you have to add your own battery for the Paspberry Pi and you're limited to the lidar that's already part of the Neato.

Turtlebot3 has raspberry pi, and the sensors and motors you need:

Here is an article in Servo Magazine about how to make a map with Neato and Raspberry Pi:
