How well do Blizzard games run on iMac?

My PC took a dump on me, and while I'm not much of a PC gamer I do love Blizzard's library. If I play on PC at all it is 99% of the time a Blizzard game. My question is: how well do Blizzard games run on a iMac? I really like Apple's stuff. Our family uses iPhones and iPads and I kind of want everything to be cohesive, which is why I'm looking into a Mac instead of a PC. This is the one I'm looking at:
21.5-inch: 2.7GHz
2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5
Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz
8GB (two 4GB) memory
1TB hard drive1
Intel Iris Pro Graphics
Let me know, guys.

I have a 2011 27-inch iMac and it runs Diablo 3 perfectly even at the highest resolution.

I'm running WOW, D3, and Hearthstone on a 4 year old PC with a bottom of the barrel GPU. I have to play on low-medium settings but still get 30-40 fps. So yeah pretty much anything new is going to run these games with no problems.
