Nothing more than color. If you will be using a light colored grout, then choose the white thinset. Darker color grout you can use the gray. With some natural stone tile, white is a better choice.

Is HD's versabond gray motar that you add only water and mix OK for the job??? Thanks !!!!
Don't know. You gotta give us a little more info. Are you using a sheet membrane over the slab, or setting direct to the slab? What kinda tile, ceramic/porcelain or stone? What kinda conditon is the slab in, any cracks, is it free of paint, sealers etc.? Is this a new concrete slab?

You can probably get by with versabond. Versabond is Custom Building Products low end modified thinset. I'd not use it with porcelain, but hey thats just me. I'd use a better quality modified thinset here.
