Besides the obvious, yellow onions are generally the cheapest, and have the strongest flavor but cooking mellows their flavor. White onions are a little bit sweeter and less pungent.

Nutrition wise, there's very little difference.
Sweet onions come in yellow or white (and a variety of other colors), and are distinguished from other onions in that they have a much higher water content and a much lower sulfur content.
