I wanted to know if someone can recommed a "very good" 10 inch laptop...from experience.  I'd prefer to have an i7 processor, but would also like to go the cheap route as well.

Thanks for your info.

A 10" netbook and an i7 CPU are mutually exclusive. Most netbooks have an Intel Atom or an AMD C series CPU to minimize power use and heat generation. You need to look at 13.3" and lager laptops if you want an i7 CPU.

The Asus EeePC series netbooks are very good and reasonably priced.

As far as AMD C series and Itel Atom, which one would be better?  I'd like to get close to the i7 processor, if possible.  Also, how's the battery life on these 10" netbooks?  Is there an option to purchase an extended battery for any of the "good" ones?

I think that you will be hard pressed to find many options with an i7 in the sub-13" category.

Having said that, you could take a look at the Asus UX21E range which utilises an 11.6" Screen, and does have an i7 option.

Most 10'' are considered netbooks, and will not have multi-core processors.

I was going to link you to the Dell Inspiron Duo, but apparently they're all sold out. It has a touch screen that flips around so when the lid is closed it's a (somewhat thick) tablet.
