    Because they use up the equivalent power to a city of Newcastle size (since they don't have fridges, cause they're northern). It would be hard to try and justify to your halls committee why you need to double your rooms electricity bill (in all seriousness, i bet it would) when you have a fully functioning fridge in your kitchen downstairs/down the hall.

    They are really noisy, and for that price you could get a proper fridge almost in the sales and that would last you after Uni and it aint gimmicky.

    I seriously doubt it will consume more power in a year than a computer used for a few hours a day.

    Look in comet in the sales, i have a tiny egg fridge which will fit like two bottles of wine and that cost me £70, my friend got a small sized normal fridge for 90/100 and in the sales they will be cheaper.

    Mini fridges, as in the ones that hold 5/6 cans don't use compressors or gas like big fridges. They use alot less power

    I did the calculation maybe something went wrong.

    600W CPU x 300 days x 3 hours a day = 540KWh/year
    60W x 365 x 24 = 526KWh/year

    Yeah, that might be the case if you were rendering 3D stuff or something, but i can guarentee that your computer, just running windows and a few browsers, MSN and a music player uses no more than 30W. Hell, all the things I just mentioned can be done concurrently on mobile phones, and there's no chance they used 600W, or even 30W (though the quality is scaled down). The fridge, however, has to constantly use it's power, even in winter, because it's always trying to cool down the contents.

    Who says the student would be staying in halls all winter? Everybody in my flat intends to eat their food before going home in a month leaving nothing in the fridge, letting the student turn the fridge off.

    Hmm, unlikely you can find one for £80. Best bet is to find one that doesn't have any shelves in, that way you can store about 2 or possibly 3 stood upright. Or you could search on ebay for one that's bigger.
