What about kegerator/beer meister systems?

We understand that some prefer a permanent, plug-in option for their home or commercial use, including refrigerator conversion kits (available for as low as $100) and low-cost home systems (available for as low as $400). However, most commercial kegerators start at $1,300, and those engineered for outdoor use start at $1,650. Regardless, none of these systems offer the simplicity, flexibility, or durability of the PortaBeer.
