Mac for general purpose and gaming

Hello, I'm new to these forums and have joined because I found them to be extremely helpful.

I've googled my topic but the research has always led to someone who wants to use Mac for high end gaming and has no focus on productivity or utility.

My issue is that I want to know what an average person who juggles multiple tasks of writing and research would prefer for a Mac. Also, the ability to play games on moderate to high settings on the occasion, not hardcore gaming; occasional sit downs to enjoy Starcraft 2 or Borderlands. I know the rule of thumb, get a PC for gaming. The problem being that I do not want a PC, I'm not a hardcore gamer, and the main focus is productivity (i.e Word/Pages, research, movies, music, etc...).

For as described above, what Mac would best fit?
