A lot depends on your needs. It's always good to find one which fits 
exactly what you want.

I don't know what these custom keys are, so I can't help there. I found 
a picture of the keyboard and it seems to have a band of additional keys 
along the wavy top edge. To remap them, you would need access to the 
scan codes they create, and this is probably restricted to Microsoft.
