Default Dorm fridge help

I am looking to get started with my first keg system, and as space as well as financials are limited I was looking at the Magic Chef 3.6 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator (http://www3.shopping.com/xPO-Magic-Chef-MCBR360)
but I'm curious to know if a cornelius keg would fit inside with all the connections?

i cant say for sure on that fridge but IMO 4.3cf is as small as you wanna go. also you dont want a freezer.

got nothing on craigslist, but I dont mind spending a few extra dollars for a nice cooler. I may go with a 5.0cu. ft. chest freezer, because they are roughly the same price as a mini fridge new.

You know after having converted my Dorm Fridge HERE I would highly suggest choosing to convert a 5 to 7cf chest freezer. If you have the space to put something like that save yourself the hassle and just buy a chest freezer.
