(September 26, 2019 update: The errors on the Asus ZenBook 15 UX534 eShop product page have been fixed. Our hats off to Asus for being quick on the corrections! The original article remains below.)
(September 25, 2019 update: Asus has confirmed that it is looking into correcting the typos on the ZenBook 15 UX534 eShop product page. There are no errors on the primary product page for the ZenBook 15 UX534.)
Typos and specification errors are inevitable when there are innumerable models and SKUs to keep track of. It's understandable to catch one or two minor errors about any given product so long as they are eventually corrected. When said mistakes are on the official manufacturer product page, however, the misinformation can be a little embarrassing and even misleading because the manufacturer product page is almost always viewed as a primary source for both consumers and retail outlets.
The ZenBook 15 UX534 product page on Asus' official online store is an example with one too many mistakes. Its first mistake is a minor "ZenBook 16" typo that should have been "ZenBook 15" instead. The second mistake is bit more careless as the "MicroSD card reader" caption is clearly pointing towards a full-size SD reader.
The last and most prominent mistake we're able to spot is the claim that the ZenBook 15 UX534 supports Thunderbolt. This is completely false and we find Asus to be irresponsible in this regard as it is boasting a feature that the laptop does not support. To be absolutely clear, the UX534 comes with a full-size SD card reader and a USB Type-C port that does not support Thunderbolt 3.
To Asus' credit, the bottom of the page says "All specifications are subject to change...", but this common disclaimer can also be found on most other product pages that have fewer mistakes than this specific Asus page. We're hopeful that the manufacturer will address these typos soon. Until then, we're calling them out on their errors with the three screenshots below.
