Thanks...yah I don't plan on getting married or having my girlfriend move in anytime soon so I could enjoy this for a while
She still isn't too fond of my homebrewing though...she probably thinks it automatically means I'm going to turn into an alcoholic or something.

The reason some are rated for under-counter use is the fridge vents from the bottom, not the rear like ordinary refrigerators.
You will have a lot of heat build-up in the rear of that unit and eventual compressor failure unless vented properly.
I looked into that very issue before installation. An HVAC tech (neighbor) in my building took a look and told me as long as I have a few inches in the back, and it's not directly up against the wall, I'll have sufficient space for it to "escape" and be okay. He also suggested I back out the big fridge a bit more to give it extra escape room from the side, since nothing is up against the kegerator on the left.
