There isn't much difference in calories and nutrition, so any apple you prefer is going to be based off more what kind of taste and texture you like.
My faves are fuji's and galas. (Granny smith's for pie or cobbler.)
All apples are pretty much of a muchness when it comes to calorie count. Which one is best for you depends on how you like their texture.
Granny Smiths tend to be very large and quite tart, but they're very refreshing if you don't mind their non-sweetness. They last practically forever in the fridge and they're great for cooking.
Golden Delicious are neutrally-flavoured and a bit on the floury side. They're lovely when fresh, but they get mealy if you keep them too long...
Galas are my favourite - small, red, plump, crisp, sweet and juicy without being cloying.
Fujis are very sweet... sometimes TOO sweet!
Jonathans are floury and to me, tasteless (horrible, icky things...)
If you want to know the exact number of calories you're eating, weigh the apple! They're about 240 calories a pound.
I thought I had an apple in the fridge at work today so I didn't bring one from home. I must have eaten it yesterday because it wasn't there :( sigh.
My opinion: organic apples taste better.

Organic Honeycrisp tastes the best
Pink Ladies are pretty tasty as well, although I prefer Honeycrisp. And Fujis are great too, of course, as everyone here has already told you. ;)
And cellophane_star... you must have had a bad Honeycrisp! :O lol... well, I love them.
yah dont care too much about calories when come to apples, the point is that you should try diffrent stuff. Find what fits you best..
omg.. organic fuji apples are the best, I LOVE them. :)
I've just run down to the kitchen, and I eat...apples. They don't have any name on them (serves me right for buying the supermarket's own brand!)
I think they're all pretty nutritious, and just go for whichever one you like or can easily buy.
