    decide whether to acquire or not.

    There is an opportunity to read many reviews and recommendations from different people, which can be helpful to decide whether to acquire or not.

    I personall believe that I should put a noun after "acquite". Am I right?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: decide whether to acquire or not.

    You should certainly put something after "acquire". In fact, with your sentence "something" would be an ideal word. Note, though, that there is an error earlier in the sentence. It should read either:

    ..., which can be helpful when deciding whether to acquire something.
    or
    ..., which can help you [to] decide whether to acquire something.

    "... or not" is not required.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
