The Dell TechFest sales event is coming to an end. The event, which started at the beginning of the month, is slated to end at the close of the month. That means you only have a few days left to take advantage of Dell's epic deals. 

It's not uncommon to see Dell deals throughout the year — their semi-annual sale is especially popular — so I've combed through all of today's deals to surface the very best sales. I've hand-picked deals on Dell devices we've tested and/or recommend. 

Currently, one of the best deals is XPS 13 for $799 at Dell. The model on sale packs a Core i7-1250U CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. It's $300 off and one of the better configurations we've seen on sale. Below are 13 other deals I'd recommend during the Dell TechFest sale.

This beautiful display is a great curved gaming monitor, and at this price it's a killer deal.
