Typing this up on my phone since work blocks the forums...so I can't provide links.

The best mini fridge I've found right now is the Danby 4.4 cu ft for $169 at Walmart or Amazon.

Any mini fridges out there that can fit 3 cornies?

I did the Danby and it was super easy. It BARELY fits 2 ball lock kegs though.

Anyone else have ideas on something better? Really wish I could find a way to squeeze 3-4 kegs in a mini fridge...

I got a 5.4 cubic-ft fridge with no freezer. Fit 2 BL-cornys and my 5lb co2 perfectly. It took months of scouring craigslist but i got it for $60

The holy grail of mini fridge kegerator conversions is still the Sanyo 4912. You won't get more than 2 kegs in there (you'll want to step up to a small chest freezer or similar for that), but it's very easy to convert and has plenty of room.

If you do a search on 4912 kegerator, you'll get hundreds of results showing exactly how it is done.

I have the 4912 and it rocks, but yeah you are not fitting more than 2 kegs in there. You could possibly fit 4 2.5 gallon stackable kegs.
