Scientific Calculator Keyboard Challenge II

Feeling creative?  Ever dreamed of the perfect calculator?  Here is a chance to design a calculator.  It can cover any part of mathematics you want:

*  Scientific
*  Financial
*  Programming/Graphing
*  Algebraic and/or RPN (Reverse Polish Notation)

Or if you want to go a specialized route, like Calculated Industries, consider:

*  Construction
*  Unit Conversion
*  Gaming
*  Geometry Applications
*  Civil Engineering
*  Physics 
*  Astronomy
*  Stock Market
*  Common Every Day Applications

It can be any combination!

*  The keyboard must be used, including the arrow keys.  Assume that the calculator will have the necessary screen size.  You have 16 blank keys, of course, you can/should consider using shift and alpha keys.
*  The keyboard has a double-wide Enter key.  RPN and Hewlett Packard fans rejoice!
*  The marked keys must remain.  

Other than that, go wild!  Leave your creation in the comments.  

Have fun!


P.S. If you want another design, I had a post where you designed a calculator keyboard using only 25 keys.  The link is here:
