If you intend to use it as a travel laptop, you should use the scrape clean and reinstall method - once. After you have the system exactly as you want it for travel, make an image backup of the entire disk.

Before each trip, restore the image to the laptop, instantly getting rid of any virus and other crap that may have been installed.

This will ensure that only the most persistent of viruses (those that write themselves into the BIOS/UEFI/device firmware or some such) will remain. If you have one of those, I suggest nuking the entire state containing the laptop; nuking the county is insufficient. Smile | :)
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
