It is powerful if you mean taking load. There is list of sites plone
on plone.org
If you mean from programming point of view. Plone is moving towards
component architecture (just like zope3). The current version of plone
is built on zope2. It is possible to do zope3 things with plone even
at this stage (I am digressing now)

On functionality specifics will help a LOT. Example, do you want to host a blog?

If you mean not_kludgy_like_PHP (sorry folks, at worst I may be
passing on a bad meme I picked from somewhere)
It has clean look if you mean that. One of the plone founders is a
User Interface Designer at google since year (based on the clean feel
of the default plone site)

It is easy.
