I work for IBM in Brno.

Costs of living: Hard to say. I am single. I've seen rent start around 8000 CZK per month and go up to 20,000 CZK per month.

I find the food costs are very reasonable. ANd IBM provides food vounchers that you can use just about anywhere.

As for career opportunities, we have many employees that started out at entry level and are now managers managing 30 people. You simply need to give IBM a chance to recognize your skills so you get promoted. Don't quit after 6 months because you didn't get promoted, that is not enough time. You will get evaluated annually and each time you set your goals for the year with your manager.

Regarding laptops, this depends on the client you support.

I live by the train station. Rents can be anywhere between 8000 CZK to 20,000 CZK.

Good luck

35000czk a month is a very decent pay, czech average is some 20000 but most of the population earn even less. you should get by easily.
A woman? Never heard of it. What do you use it for? Where can I download one?

I guess 35 000 CZK is good salary for possition of HelpDesk. It depends on your qualities, skills, but what I heard, HelpDesk is not well paid here.

Here is a YouTube video on life at IBM Brno.

Yes, there are several Indian's working at the IBM IDC. IBM offers lots of career opportunities, the trick is to give the company at least a year to recognize your skills and then doors will open if you have the talent.

Here is a You Tube video on IBM Brno. As for the jobs, not sure what they are hiring you for, but give it a chance and you won't regret it.
