Default kegging and/or lagering???

I am looking to add a third fridge to our collections of two fridge/freezers and one deep freezer. We mostly cook at home, so we store lots of goodies.

I currently get one of the fridge/freezers for beer and beer only, but my next step in brewing will beer using lager yeasts or kegging the beers.

Do you guys think I should get two separate units for this, or try to get a unit that will do both? If I got a top freezer unit and put a new temperature controller on it, could I lay the mini kegs on their side or will I need to store them upright?

I store all my mini-kegs upright so they don't leak. The choice is yours.

If you add a collar to a chest freezer you'll have extra room to stack the minis.
