Does anyone have any recommendations on a good, yet not too expensive, angle grinder for both general use and for AK projects? I'm currently looking at this one below:
Any advice is appreciated.

I bought a decent angle grinder at HF for around $10.00.

That one will work fine, but I think if you look around a little bit you can find a little better price.
That looks just like the one I have but IIRC I only paid about $20.
Do you have any of those traveling tool shows in your area?
They usually have a good deal on them.

I got one like in the link above but from a harbor freight retail store. It was on sale for $19.99 - but that was about a month ago. Sometimes the retail harbor freight stores are cheaper than the internet - sometimes not.

Couldn't you use a Dremel tool?

A Dremel is a great tool, and I use mine frequently, but occasionally you need <Tim the tool man Taylor voice on> More Power <TT voice off>
Think of the Dremel as a small ball pein hammer and the angle grinder as a 3lb. sledge

I just found this one at HF for $9.99. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=3150
Must be Chicom to be that cheap. :)

Invest in a good dremel. I use mine on all my ak builds and it has over 100 attachments. You can even use it as a drill press.
