The  Miller Spectrum 300 can cut very thin metal (pop can thin) up to 1/2".  Mild steel, Aluminum, and Stainless. It has quickly become a toy in the shop, because it just uses shop supplied air, and a 30 amp circuit.  The consumables are just two small parts - that if the plasma cutter is used correctly - will actually last a long time   This tool is fast cutting and very accurate.  

If you use a straight edge, or a curved edge that is smooth, and just follow it with the plasma cutter, it will copy it very nicely.

To cut out various shapes in metal, I have found that I literally suck at free hand cutting.  However, with a little creativity, I can make some nice cuts using a series of pre cut shapes to use as a  guide.  I just chucked up different sized tubes, and angle iron in my bandsaw, and cut off slices at about 3/16" or so.  Now I can just hold them in place or clamp them down and run the plasma cutter tip against them.  Note: the cut will be about 1/8" from the piece used as a guide, so by chasing the inside of the tube piece, I can get a much tighter cut than say if I used the outside.  With just a few of these I can get a large verity of shapes.
