FWIW, at my office we have a Brother all-in-one unit. I can't remember
the model number, sorry, but it is one that was between 400 and 500
US dollars at Staples. (it's monochrome, BTW, not the color the OP

My Centos 5 box at my desk works fine with the printer and the scanner
portions, using Brother's drivers. I haven't attempted to FAX from my
computer using the MFC, but there are drivers for that on the Brother
web site.

I would expect (but have no direct knowledge) similar good results
with pretty much any of Brother's MFC units. YMMV.
