function can be given a scope of 'agenda (see its docstring). You could
call it with the agenda scope and a matcher for the "laptop" tag -- that
would at least get you all the headings in all the agenda files with the
"laptop" tag. Then the actual mapping function could call
`org-get-heading' on each of the matching headings, and check the text.
In these cases, though, I generally try to find a way to know the
heading's ID property, and use `org-id-goto'.
Hope that helps,
