MicroFridge vs. Mini Refrigerator

A while ago I received a large envelope with various housing papers enclosed. One of these papers was advertising the ASUCD Refrigerator Service, which provided information about two refrigerator options: the MicroFridge and the Mini Refrigerator. It appeared to me that the MicroFridge is undoubtedly better than the Mini Refrigerator(the fridge is bigger and it has a microwave). On the paper, however, the MicroFridge is listed as $40 for 9 months, while the Mini Refrigerator is listed as $125 for 9 months. Convinced that I must be missing something, I stared at the page searching for a reason. I still don't get it. Were the prices mistakenly reversed or is this information correct?

EDIT: Nevermind. I just realized that the back of the page lists the prices again, but this time it lists the MicroFridge at the higher price. In this case, I think it's pretty obvious that the front page is a mistake.

    Youre going for that? I dunno, I was thinking about it and didnt think it was going to be necessary. What are your reasons for wanting it, because our dorms have lounges with communal kitchens.

    Just interested in knowing, because I might change my mind, too..

    I doubt I will get either actually. I'm thinking about it though.

    say you're studying for you final. suddenly, a nice cold beverage sounds really good. but do you really want to go all the way out to the lounge, possibly a couple floors down, just to get it? and besides, if it's a communal fridge, what are you going to do when someone just steals your drink, or questions the legality of it?

    or what about if you get suddenly hungry for some reason, wouldn't a nice frozen dinner about 10 feet away sound really good?

    Food in a communal refrigerator has been known to evaporate quickly. A bottle of soda might have a three minute half life after you leave the room. Purchasing a cheap refrigerator might be considerably less expensive in the long run. Microwaves sell for as little as $60 bucks in some big stores.

    You guys do make good points in favor of getting one. I'll have to see what my roommate thinks.

    Yea, was just thinking about it, if your roommate splits the cost it only ends up being about 60 or so, right? Thats not that bad for a whole year..
