Options and Gadgets
You may be surprised to know that there are quite a few new models and extra luxuries being built into the common mini fridge these days.
They are becoming whisper silent, which is a big difference from the loud, annoying buzz that used to be heard throughout dorm hallways.
Some sleeker versions now come with LCD screens that show the temperature, and allow you to adjust with the simple press of a button.
Weight, believe it or not, is also changing. Some mini fridges are now as small as 10 to 15 pounds, versus the 30+ pound behemoth people used to drag down the hallway.
Interior lights, slide out and adjustable shelves, and adapters that allow you to plug into your car, as well as your home are all options now on some versions.
Things to Consider
A lot of people purchase their mini fridge online for obvious reasons. Usually you can find them cheaper online than in a store, compare features and models a lot easier, have more selection, and get it mailed to your front door or dorm versus driving (if you have access) to the local mall and lugging it around (although lighter, they can still be awkward for transportation).
When purchasing online don't forget to review shipping options and shipping pricing. Shipping can impact the actual price you have to pay.
