With 50 users as your max, I would recommend looking at either the Cisco Catalyst 3560 or 3750 as they can perform layer 3 functions. The decision between the two models would be based on your requirements for your environment.
If you are not concerned about high availability or 99.999% uptime, I would look at a single 3560 series switch with the enhanced IOS for layer 3 routing protocols.
If you want high availability I would look at two Cisco Catalyst 3750 series switches stacked. Stacked Cisco Catalyst 3750 switches look and act as one switch which allows you to dual home your access switches. If one of your 3750s fail, the other one will keep the network up and if you are using etherchannel or LACP, your users most likely won't notice the failure occured.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 series switches are nice but I think it would be major overkill for your environment, but if you don't have a budget to spend, go for it
