It's funny Dell doesn't even know. They told me:

A friend of mine calls it "signo de negación lógica"; in English it's called "bash", I'm told. It is used in programming and they read it as "no". So Q is the contrary to ¬Q.

No idea why it is a part of the Latin American Keyboard; I've never used it. Maybe programmers and mathematicians had a big say in what characters should be priority.
By the way, in my keyboard (Spanish from Spain) it's typed with ctrl + alt + 6

Thanks. I knew Dell support was wrong. He argued with me that he was right. I thought he was describing @.

I just thought there was some specific reason why it was on a Spanish keyboard, but almost all programming is written in English. At least I know what it is.

I thought it was something else, because in Korean there is a very similar character ㅋ which is like LOL. On funny videos they use ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ a lot.
